These Particulars

The chasm between
Depression and living
Can be a world
Where
Every heartbeat
Measures a step
Forward or behind.
There
Is no catching up
Only characters speaking
Lines unrehearsed;
Smiles
Borrowed from clowns
Who laugh upon call
Of immense misfortune.
Unseen
The stars wield
Bright, unfiltered light
Yet denied sight, hope
Sky
Naked, lost, love departed,
But reaching again
Capturing through will
Enough
To rearrange depression
Reclaim hope, dreams,
Love, in particular, completion.
