I Can't Keep From Wondering... by Melancholy-Man I Can't Keep From Wondering... by Melancholy-Man
Just a little song I wrote back on my birthday Jan. 3, 2011 during one of those all too common depressed states.

I have been feeling that way lately since a friend took her life on June 27th of this year. I miss her greatly and wonder if I will end up losing to my depression like she had. Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you for the comments D.S. Sorry for your loss and hope that you are winning your battle with depression! I've had recurring bouts over the years. At the moment I am doing well and as long as life doesn't throw another curve ball I can't handle the future looks bright. :)

Thanks and your welcome. Sometimes reacting out to others who have felt like I have helps me get better since people who don't have depression don't understand as well.

I wish you a good life and that the goddess watches over you.

I am so glad I found this poem on Tea's DA page. You expressed so well the feelings that I have in this period of my life. So many bad choices, so many mistakes along the way make me wonder where my life went wrong. I feel like I squandered so many days that I could have used to do something more productive. When you're very young you think you have all the time in the world until one day you realize that you don't have endless days to make things better. I'm sorry for writing so long because you don't know me at all but this poem just touched me so much ! If you weren't totally depressed, you will be after reading this and I'm truly sorry for that. :iconblueheartplz:

Hello Cecilia :wave:
Sorry for the late reply... I haven't had internet service for a long time, but I'm back now.
Thank you very much for your comments, they're most appreciated and I am sure a lot of people can relate to the feelings I tried to express in this song/poem. Hope your situation has improved and that you are in a better frame of mind than I was at that time. :rose:

That is quite alright!! I had to go back and read my comments. I think at times I am in a better frame of mind than when I wrote my comments. But I still have those feelings now and then which I imagine a lot of others do too.Thanks for responding!!!

Well .. David, I really like this image .. it is as melancholic as the words that go along with it .. I hope that your art (writing, painting or whatever else) , gives you relief & that you are able to cast any kind of emotional baggage on these artworks.
I have great respect for your forthrightness.

Take care :hug:

Thank you Sophie :thanks:
Both writing and painting serve as emotional outlets which to some extent brings relief. Expression of emotions through whatever means is certainly healthier than suppression.
Emotional baggage! hmmmm...
The way I like to think of it is that people who have not learned from their experiences turn them into baggage which they drag from one unscheduled stop to the next, while those who have turn them into a road map to guide them on their journey. Then there's always the oddball who has his road map locked in his baggage and refuses to leave the hotel. ;p

:D and you take care too my dear friend! :heart: :hug:

You didn't? tsk tsk
I have about seven or eight on the Prydain account not including the ones I put in comments on my images there and quite a few other peoples work. :D

I wanted to post it to the Poetry Gallery but I couldn't find the proper category that allowed me to post an image file.:(

Really? :omg: I still have 176 deviations to check out from your old gallery :faint: I saw thumbs only they are amazing ^_^

I'm not sure but i think you can submit it to Literature > Poetry > Emotional > Songs & Lyrics or somewhere other sub-category, then use "Upload file" button to add the picture and "Add text" button to add the text. Or you might submit it to Visual Poetry sub-category (:

Just delete them from your message center and stop by the gallery, it's a lot faster that way. :)
There's a folder there for poetry and songs you could check too. :D

I switched this to the Literature/poetry/emotional/visual poetry gallery. Lets see how long it takes to get a miscat notice now. :lol:

Thank you dear! :heart: :hug:
:tighthug: :cuddle: with hopes that we both will sing happier songs tomorrow.

In many ways our lives are better than that of our parents :nod: but then the world is so different now and many of the technological advances which held promise for a better life have actually created more problems. Problems which our parents never faced.
It's sad when you realize you have the ability to reach out and speak with people all over the world yet you still feel alienated.
