In the dead of winter
When it's very dark and cold
A feeling like I'm locked away
Is ever present in my soul
A tremendous building pressure
Begins to nag and bite its way
Not knowing what I'm feeling 
That is constant from day by day
The tension is increasing
A sick feeling deep inside 
I wonder if I can get up
When I really want to die
All day long I fight the urge
To say what the hell and just give up
Sane, insane are intertwined
The last thing I want is someone to love
Do I entertain thoughts of suicide  
They are bouncing around in my thoughts
But I trust it will get better
In fact it's all I've got
Seasonal Affective Disorder
A disease with darts for a cure
No wonder I spend days out in the summer 
Knowing in months what I'll have to endure

All I can say about this poem is that we all have felt this way at one time or another. This is a poem that you will either hate or love. Read this poem and then jude for yourself.
