Too Much Water

Depression is often compared to drowning. What most people fail to mention is that the water is contained within the body; the depressed person drowns internally. There are no crashing ocean waves, just a steady crushing of the lungs. Sometimes, when there's too much water sloshing around inside me, I try to puke it up. As sick as I feel, nothing ever comes up. Perhaps that is what tears are.

  1. Hi Mariah, I don't know if you remember me. I still check my old blog every now and then and I remember you would leave comments on it. I think I recall that you stopped this blog for a while. But now it seems like you're back and I guess that's not a great thing. Well I just wanted to let you know that I'll be here in a way, and I'll check back.
