All you regular readers know that I suffer from depression and most of my vignettes are written either when I’m falling into a period or just coming out. This was written many years ago and delves into what I feel or don’t feel when under the grip of depression.
I’m getting round to putting my previous writing back on the website and I do find it strange when I re-read these vignettes. There is something familiar yet alien about them.
I’m in a good place at the moment and this just reminds me to hang on to how I am feeling right now for as long as I can.
If you know anyone that suffers from depression, please be understanding. They may continually push you away, but that is a symptom of the condition. Be there for them. Be understanding and be kind. There may be very little you can do when they are in the depths of there depression, but you can make sure you are still there when they come out of it.
This was a haiku I wrote many years ago after I went to visit my grandmother in the hospital. She was in a geriatric ward with five other very old ladies. The sight had a profound effect on me, it appeared that they were all just waiting for death.
A bay of six beds
Aged occupants lie and sit, still
A living morgue
YOI Cockton was the forerunner to my series YOI Cock Town. I call it a pilot for the series and was in part an experiment of mine as I had never written any featuring domination or forced sex. It had never really been a fantasy of mine, but as the story was quite well received I turned it into a series.
The eagle eyes readers will recognise the name Cockton as it is part of of the town of Cockaigne. Old Cockton was an ancient village that was subsumed into the larger town.
YOI Cockton was later renamed Cockaigne Correction Centre and expanded to house men of all ages, there is even a women’s wing. Of the four wings of ‘3C’, one is for young offenders, two for men and one for women.
I think YOI Cockton and the series YOI Cock Town were the seed that germinated into the town of Cockaigne.
