DARK EUREKA

This is a companion piece, in prose form, to ‘THE TRICKSTER’. That poem was to bring attention to Clinical Depression , this piece takes a step further and tries to convey the potential seriousness of Depression by explaining how the disease can and does lead people to take their own life. It gives a glimpse of the kind of thought process involved. My hope is that more awareness will lead to greater help for those in need.

DARK EUREKA

Sat in the dark, alone, half-light sight

but you don’t see. Shadow thrusts and

parries across the room, eager too for

an answer. A turbid thought fog, round

and round the same old theme. A solution

there, fingertip touch,ever elusive.

Then WAIT ! That’s it, solved !

Peace, such a soothing balm, a

feeling of triumph. A wry smile

teasing yourself, of course !

Simple algebra answered.

Sinister math problem where

the answer’s not 2x.

Peace, relief, dark eureka moment.
