Pre-Christmas Depression

When you can not do the things you wish you could

Where everything seems so overwhelming

When every little problem gets blown up

to twice its normal size

And all you want to do is curl up into a small ball

huddled under a blanket

and cry until the new year begins

Except the problems won’t go away

and you are forced to fight the sense of loss

until you can breathe again

and hopefully find a crack of light

coming from underneath an edge of the blanket

Also that it is warm
