Depressed—I Turn To Writing

My name is Theresa, I love to write and read poetry. My favourite poet is Billy Collins. I am mainly inspired to write by everyday happenings or feelings, and I often write with some humour or sarcasm. My travel experiences have also influenced my writing, some of my favourite places to travel have…






My best writing stems from emotionally charged moments.
Whether I am full of rage, bitterness, or anger.
Perhaps joy, jubilation, or excitement.

Even emotionally charged moments
of deep melancholy, depression,
create intricately beautiful phrases
which weave themselves into sentences,
which often develop into stanzas.

Which have the ability to shed the cliché light
on the proverbial darkest of moments.
