Depression Wins Again, the Bastard

The phone rang at about 9:30 tonight; the caller id said Florida calling. But it's past midnight there and Sharv works so she's not usually initiating calls this late...

"It's Nige. He lost to the depression today" in a hotel on the beach in Queensland Australia where he'd traveled just over a month ago to find his new love and life.

Pain grips and grabs and flays. Breath catches; tears fall hot and furious. This was to be his new beginning.

Words won't come. Sorrow pushes them out of reach.

Good night, my friend, I love you and will miss you more than you will ever know.


  1. I am so sorry for the loss I am sure several of you and yours are feeling. Depression is a cruel mistress.

  2. Oh shit L3. Sorry to hear of yet another loss in your life. {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}

  3. Lynda ... no words ... I'm so sorry for your friend ... a big hug ....
