Drawing depression

Graphite  covers the side of my right hand
evidence of pencil stains
born from drawing
from scribbling
from aggressively pressing the point of my pencil
into the paper making dark lines appear
drawing my depression onto the page

My drawing isn’t a drawing
just scattered thoughts
pieces of my mind represented in scribbles
It lacks a general subject because there is no general subject
It is a mood
a feeling
a weight on my heart
a heaviness in my breath

My lines and thoughts are
incomplete
unresolved
a spilled bucket of phrases
much like this poem

Changing my mental state
is not as easy as scribbling
but
scribbling helps.
