It’s still snowing … only just … little flakes that fall on the curve of the wind that take a while to reach the white ground in the golden illumination of a standard, British, navy street-lamp.

It’s still snowing … less than just … the occasional flake that falls in the glow of the light and drifts on the breeze, like a feather, to the shining, shimmering, freezing floor of these good Ole days.

It’s still snowing … in the night … in the light of that brilliant, orange, glooming globe, and I watch as the white dies to a darker shade of grey – vertically drifting towards oblivion.

It’s still snowing … to the right … of my green eyes, my window, those silver-grey shooting stars, and I can’t help but think that if you were here … you’d understand.

It’s still snowing … shooting stars … across my current, depressive mentality … but who is God?
And why must I pray to him so religiously, when all I can give is pain and regret, and all I get

In return is such brutality?

    Yet another in the tremendous history of your literary excellence. I really dig your style and though it may be out of unfortunate circumstance that you’ve endured so much at such a young age I think we all benefit from your pieces.

    I hope oneday you find happiness in whatever you do in life and though I am not religious I won’t discredit anyones choices of belief in their preference of inner peace. Look to thyself in happiness, look to other’s in confirmation. ( i heard that somewhere)

    I kinda love this.

    And this is a rough time of year for those of us who deal with depression. The shortened days do nothing positive for mood.

    You’re right there Jim! Especially when Christmas is over :(. I honestly can’t thank you two enough for always commenting on my drabble! I swear I’ll get round to returning the favour soon.

    Simply amazing! Even though depression is a horrible thing that makes everything seem useless and a waste, I do my best writing when I feel as though I’d rather be ashes then living flesh. You always amaze me with your beautiful writing. Well done!
