Darkness Ever Pressing

I've been left
With my thoughts
Too long
I can't escape
The pure essence
Of memories
how a desire
For an escape
Of this
Lifeless hope
What's wrong
With me?
I had the
Perfect life
By my eyes
I had
Love
I need it
To survive
For once I
Was happy
But now
That's stripped
From me
THis darkness
Ever creeping
In
The tears
Won't stop
The flow
As a river
A river
Of self-pity
What's wrong
With me?
Stricken
By darkness
The feling
Of losness
The happiness
Have left
My body
Self-punishment
Is the desire
To resist
Ever movement
Only brings me lower
Oh what is
Wrong with me?
I feel
So at lost
And alone
I fear
I will lose
Him, my dearest
Love
To this ever
Pressing
Darkness
Of my
Depression
What am I
To do of
My Depression?

I love the way your pieces are laid out, the way the poem snakes down the page, two or three words at a time.  Nice work, the emotion is very strong!
