The Daily Haiku – 29th Weekly Theme, Depression 2

#TheDailyHaiku

Depression 2 

The abyss, dark, black
hole's edge to which I cling on,
with my fingertips.

The fear of falling
in renders me useless like
a ragdoll.

Then I fall into
the abyss, two ways out, climb
or suicide.

**N.B. Depression is caused by a lack of serotonin in the brain. The person who is depressed has no control over this. They cannot pull themselves together. No-one would choose to be depressed. So please don’t tell people “to pull themselves together” they are not a pair of curtains; urge them to seek medical help instead. Thank you. **
