Down in the dumps

Down in the dumps

So many sufferers saddened by a burdened blight.. that overwhelming gloominess darkens one’s light..like a wave in the ocean as it breaks on the sandy shore, with such a sudden surge  of power.. just like the slamming of a door!!

A cloak-and-dagger concealment within one’s inner peace..gnawing away bit by bit so silently quiesce..a hush-hush heavyheartedness, a misery of melancholy.. with absolutely no control, depression hates jolly, folly

Desolation..dejection engulfs the tormented mind.. a discouragement of dispiritedness so sorrowfully unkind..lost in one’s lugubriosity, with a hoplessness of blues.. like a down in the dumps spreading..black bruise..

Rising from the ashes..as it waxes and wanes, faster than one can cope with..in deep, troublesome pains.. as this dreaded disease succeeds mind, body and soul.. one is sinking ever deeper into depressions desperate hole.. as one sits aching in anguish thinking they are all alone..millions more woebegones weep clinical depression undertone..

Hi Jillian! 
I loved that! Before I read it, I read the 'Tags' you put on it(Alone, Anguish, Appalling(hey! watch it!), darkness, etc.), and I thought 'why is Jill writing to ME??!! 
But then I read it, and wow, I could really empathize with that. I haven't been on in about 5 days because I'm a vegetable, but I'm glad I came on to read that. Wonderful, powerful write, my friend. Thank you. I have those feelings a lot. 
How are you doing? How's your friend? 

Great to see you on here, I'll have to get caught up. 

Matthew.

Thank you, Jillian, and that is such a sad story about your friend, but I hope she continues to get better, and I hope she knows what a great friend she has in you. 
You're welcome about commenting on your little ditty(I didn't realize I had! I thought I commented on your poem!). I'm glad you liked my comment though! Whew. 
I'm thinking of writing a manjoon, but I don't know what it is. Look for it. 

Thanks, 

Maahthew(that's how my butler would say it, if I had one). 
Over.

Thanks Jillian! 
You befuddle me with your baffle-ness! 
If I had worn a hat today, I would tip it to you...unfortunately, I didn't, and have removed a small portion of my skull in trying to do so. Do you like my brain area? Thank you! 
Sorry, I think I'm nuts today, don't mind me. OK?

Hey! Did you just 'yuk' my encephalon??!! I'll have you know my brain took 2nd place in the Miss Brain Louisiana Pageant in this upcoming October, in July!(unfortunately, there were no other contestants, but I think the judges really liked my cerebellum's yodelling routine). 
As for the rest of your message, I never understand your Northumbrian dialect, but I think you might have written a poem about wasps, which I will read with bells on(I fell into a vat of bells this morning). 
Onward! 
Matthew.
