Another 100 word challenge post about depression from me. I am not currently depressed, but I still want to write about it, to bring attention to it. Not only that, but when I saw this week’s prompt (‘but it was there just a moment ago’), it was the loss of happiness that jumped into my mind, that was what I was inspired to write about.
I’m looking around, high and low, left and right, but it seems to have gone. But it was there just a moment ago, my happiness. Why now is it nowhere to be found? Lost. Buried under a mountain of negative emotions, pain, hopelessness.
It always happens this way; I am happy and then suddenly it is gone, and I cannot find it, not anywhere. It is a mystery to me, how no amount of looking will find it. It will reappear, as with other lost items, when it is least expected, forgotten.
I should stop looking, but I am scared.
