The sense of unwanting and disbelief, with the ability to drag you further into its depths of irretrievable hell... it even has the ability to kill people, works well in poetry i find, if you are going to travel on this path, make sure you leave a realy long rope behind you...
Like a mound of dirt that i just can't seem to climb up, every time i move i slip further down, to the depths of where i don't want to be, someone, please someone save me... i don't want this to happen

To be 'melancholy' is a brand of sadness that is over thought, prolonged and can be caused by any reason regardless of its the magnitude. It's a very personal, heavy weighing sadness. It has similar characteristics with depression however, melancholy is an insidious sadness. It's more than simple desolation or dejection, melancholy feeds on pensive self reflection in such a low state, reflecting lower and lower on itself until you can't see anything other than sadness.
Example 1)
Person 1: I just went for a 5 hour walk, didn't bring any food or water and just listened to music.
Person 1: It's 3 AM... maybe I'll just eat tomorrow.
Person 1: ... fuck I need to stop thinking about this so much, it's making me Melancholy.
