Soul Skinned Alive

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.
