adventures in dysthymia

This is my pain.
I am greedy;
I will not share.
This is my pain
to hold like the last note
of a fading song.

Its emptiness
fills me, takes
away the breath
of everyday,
the ceaseless despair
of existence.

This is my pain:
mindless, a candle
left to burn
itself away
and cast no light.

Oh dear, Steve's being gloomy again. AND I broke my rule about the word 'like!' :)
