In the arms of melancholy

It beckons

You in its folds

Enveloping you

In its outstretched arms

Seeking the

Vulnerable corners

Of your being

Encircling your tender heart

In concentric circles

It gazes at you longingly

With hazel eyes

Hounds you till you yield

Probes you till you bend

To its elfin charms

Haunts you

Till it engulfs you

Melancholy is

An enticing mistress

It chases you till

You succumb

  1. It does.. and then starts the cycle of trying to escape from it all..
    to be happy again and to smile.
    If that’s the goal then melancholy can be defeated…

    beautifully expressed LOI!
