To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson


Shades of
blue,
gray,
black,
all around me.
Shades of
pink,
yellow,
green,
have never found me.
Lifting,
floating,
soaring,
falling.
What goes up
must come down.
A meadow in spring
always reaches winter.
While you're in the clouds
enjoy the rush.
Enjoy the light.
While it still exists.

Nice and intense. Meaning a tad unclear but really powerful regardless and nice idea.

Yup, I was a depressed little 13 year old. Oh well, I got over it.
