An Old Rival Returns

The sadness has returned
                    settled, nestled

In my chest where a hole was
                       burnt, rotted

Just its size, but maybe more
                       surging, heavy

It remembers its old home
                       numbing, fogging

The tendrils surround my core
                       swelling, bleeding

Shrapnel of emotional pain
                      apathy, anxiety

And down, down I've fallen

Author's Note
I've had chronic depression all my life. I thought I was doing better recently, but then my world shattered - again.
