Deceitful Lover
by Debbie Sickler  
9/21/2006 / Poetry


I lay in bed at night.
Depression comes;
A frequent visitor.

He creeps into my mind.
Ravages my soul.
Leaves me empty.

Empty, except for his lies.

Lies I greedily swallow,
like finely aged wine.
Tears spill in silence.

I beg him to leave; he refuses.

Misery from my past
is summoned.
My being aches.

Depression shares me
with Confusion and Sorrow.
Sadness and Pain follow.

We are nightly companions.

Darkness shrouds me.
I am pulled deeper
into their treachery.

“You are nothing.”
They spew a vile web,
ensnaring me.

“There is no hope”
More lies swirl about
masterfully.

“No one could love you”
I see nothing beyond
the world they’ve created.

Their voices
overwhelm me.
I no longer fight.

I accept them as truth.

Depression returns
to me nightly.
He is a frequent visitor.

I grow weary
and no longer remember
who I once was.

I am void of feelings.

Feelings hurt
too deeply to
express.

I hear a new voice.

It whispers
amongst their
screams.

“You are everything to me.”

What was that?
I thought I heard
kind words.

Those words could
not be spoken
for me?

“I am your hope.”
His voice penetrates
the darkness.

“I love you.”
My soul quivers.
Lord, is that you?

I hear my Savior.

The one who
will not lie
to me.

The one who
will comfort
me.

The one who
will not
deceive.

I have remembered
the true lover of
my soul.
