Tired of Depression

Written for:  2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 3
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Tired of (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “Tired of the Same Old Thing,” “Tired of Daylight Savings Time,” “Tired of Halloween Candy.”

Here is my confession–
I am tired of depression,
and psychiatric sessions
about foolish old obsessions
with lovers that caused oppression
in rapid-fire succession.
I am sick of indigestion,
and it shows in my expression.
If you are in possession
of a way to achieve progression
from this state of repression,
do share your thoughts, even if you’re guessin’.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
