my desk

under my desk is where i hide

when sadness overwhelms me.

it’s a place where no one else can go –

only i command the key.

there is no chaos, anger or noise

only some dust and a crumb or two –

it is a rather tight space

that fits me well,

along with my tears

and a box of tissues.

i can shut out the room around me –

try not to be reminded

of all that was him.

but when i close my eyes,

and hug my legs

i feel every little thing that i miss.

someday i will leave this place,

let go of all the torment and strife

walk away from my desk,

step out the door


begin once again –

a new life.


i miss this.
so very much.

    Love your poetry. I read somewhere that depression is like a butterfly, it comes and goes. I remind myself of that when it hits me. Hope you feel better soon. I miss my dog too.
