Falling into Fall

14 Oct

The trees are shedding their leaves

as depression rolls back in

predictable as the snow

that will soon blanket the ground

and it will wrap its icy cold arms

tightly around my shoulders

so it begins again

our battle of wills

the seesaw of ups and downs

wins and losses

as I work my way along

the seemingly endless corridor

a hallway where everyday there is a door

which I feel compelled  to open

one by one

fearful of what is on the other side
