a Photographic Journey by Meryl


Deep down
he lies still survives

Lift me up
stop the spiral

Choose what’s white
not black and viral

    This one I just had to stop and comment, because it resonates so clearly with me. I have been here, more times than I can count, and your words perfectly describe the desperation of trying to stop that downward spiral before the dark can take over. I was diagnosed with depression when I was 17, so I really relate to many of your poems and to your words, Your photo is awesome! Thank you for sharing this. ~ Julie

    • Julie, you’ve made my day…it’s been my hope that others would relate and find strength here…it’s so difficult when that darkness descends to catch yourself before you fall and reach for your Angel…thanks so much for sharing…xomeryl
