DepressionDepression is dark.
It sounds like a heavy heart
and smells like an abandoned house.
It tastes like water.
Depression feels all alone in the world.
LoveLove is a rainbow.
It sounds like sweet nothings
and tastes of kisses from your other half.
It smells like a stolen night shirt.
Love makes you feel safe and wanted.
BabiesBabies are the brightness in the world.
They sound like barely formed words and newly discovered laughter.
Babies smell like lotion and diapers
and taste like processed food and powdered formula.
Babies feel like sticky, slobbery kisses.
ChildrenChildren are color in motion.
They sound of playful laughter.
They taste like smeared candy
and smell like dirty clothes.
Children feel like squeezy hugs and bedtime kisses.
