Depression

  A plunge into the vortex that
spirals deep into the eternal darkness,
touching briefly the millenias
past, falling continuously into the
chasm; cold, lonely, lost
in ebony of time
into the fire that is 
the very heart of the world
where it is hot and cold and
everything is lost and found,
until the center of the world is 
is passed and never touched;
only a glimpse into those things
of which this earth is created;
we are all part and yet not
of what lies beyond our conscious
selves, beyond what we perceive
with any of our senses; 
looking for the light that exists
in the darkness and finding
only darkness within the light.
