Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt 35

Sammi, I chose a Prompt with a new perspective, “Emptiness”

A young friend has early onset dimentia. He’s always had depression issues, but this is much worse. As a long distance observer, I feel frustrated and helpless. I can’t imagine how he feels–I could never fully understand the depression either. He knows the blackness well, I’m sure he fears emptiness.

    The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land
    Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky
    A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers
    But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking
    He’s haunted by the memory of a lost paradise
    In his youth or a dream, he can’t be precise
    He’s chained forever to a world that’s departed
    It’s not enough, it’s not enough
