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

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.
