Oh hi there, melancholic depression.
I thought you were gone for good.
No? Well then welcome back.
Oh, no, no no, it’s no trouble at all that you are back the night just before a class test. No trouble at all.
Oh, of course I “missed” you. Couldn’t function without you at all.
Yeah, sure, keep reminding me again how I don’t have anyone to hold me and comfort me through the tough moments. I let it slip my mind during your absence.
You’ll give me an hourly reminder? Thank you so very much! I “appreciate” that.
Yeah, my tears are blurring my view, wetting my class notes. Never mind, tears dry up and are soon forgotten again.
Yes, take up all the space, push me back into the corner where I belong. I was presumptuous to step out of it anyway.
No, I won’t forget about you again. You are, after all, a major part of my life. Been there constantly beside me ever since I can remember.
Yes, I will listen to you from now on. I don’t exist anymore.
Yes, take over my life. I don’t know what to do with it anyway.
Yes, stay. Stay forever if you like. I don’t mind at all. I don’t.
