Depression is your soul, skinned alive and salted. Salt cannot be neutralized only diluted. So dilute, with whatever liquid or herbal agent is at hand. The pain lessens… your dissolution accelerates. It is said that light and love (usually in mass-produced capsule form) can wash the corrosive residue off your flayed psyche. For a price. What no one ever tells you And no pill bottle label ever shows you Is that each pill, Each so-called miracle cure, Is a tiny mirror Reflecting your agony Back to yourself.
