Oh, this piece has such a melancholy aura to it! Your descriptive words evoked truly sad feelings in me.

I am a person who loves the light, so I really appreciated the folowing passage:
"There was a time
I could bathe in its light.
Even when I closed my eyes
The light didnít go away.
It waited for me until I chose to let it in."

Good job with this "Sad" topic! :)
This is a beautiful piece, speaks so much of how sadness feels-- also reminds me of S.A.D. (seasonal affectiveness disorder) but the overall tone reminds me of those I know who have suffered from depression. It's a moving piece. Nicely done.
Really liked the way you were able to put your emotions into tangible terms we all could understand. While reading it, I couldn't help but think of how depression overtakes one exactly as you have so-well described.
Well done. This made feelings of sadness well up in me also.
I love how descriptive your words were. They perfectly describe how it feels when sadness overtakes us. Keep writing!
