Depression is like a spider—
A spider I've been trying to reach;
To throw out the window.
It sits in the corner of the ceiling.
The visitors are reeling.
Come greet it and say hello;
Treat it with kindness.
It's scared to vacate, afraid of falling.
The visitor is crawling.
It has become a friend of mine;
We share our frozen legs.
The blanket it built is far-reaching.
My throat is screeching.
