I am terrified by this dark thing
That sleeps in me;
All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.

Content Warning: mental health, depression 

Depression is an aurora borealis of shadows, a dark wing that settles over me. Under its blanket of silent oppression my mind and body hurt, still and listless, not Domme or wife or friend or woman, just a husk, waiting for the light to filter in again.

  1. Such a moving, personal and intimate image that perfectly expresses a feeling I’m familiar with, I hope it lifts soon for you, in the meantime I’m sending support your way ?

  2. Oh, Violet. This is a heartwrenchingly beautiful post. I am sorry you are struggling, I know that darkness well and it can be incredibly overwhelming and scary. I am always around to hear a vent, if you ever need to exercise some demons 🙂 I feel like I am finally starting to come out of that darkness. Wishing you peace and light ?

  3. I am struggling for words for my response to this post, purely because all my words are trying to spill out at once in an effort to say I get this. Your image really struck a chord because it looks how I felt for many months of last year. Your picture looks to be explaining a feeling and that is an incredible achievement even if it has come from an experience that is far from pleasant. Lots of warm thoughts coming your way and thank you for sharing your image and your words with us xxx

I'd love to hear your thoughts ...
