Alphabet Poem: After Becoming Clinically Depressed

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

This poem is an example of an Alphabet Poem.

It was written as a challenge by Veronica McDonald on Hubpages.com to complete this poetry exercise.

This is my attempt.

The word xylography is used in this poem. It means to make wood engravings.

After becoming clinically depressed
even friendships give her intense jeopardy,
keeping little minds nagging openly
praying questions
remain silent today,
utilizing visual words xylography
yodeling zealously.
