TUNE THE PORTRAITS - TOO CLOSE
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.” Laurell K. Hamilton
Which is worse: physical trauma or psychological? Ask the soldiers returning from fruitless wars. The luckier amongst them can be cured of the wounds to their bodies within months. But the mental scars rarely fade in a lifetime. Depression and mental illnesses affect one in ten people and if left untreated, have the power to destroy what might otherwise be a bright future overflowing with strong relationships and positive experiences. This song paints a picture of one person’s experience of depression at a young age and of the intensity of emotions that can leave the first-time sufferer frightened and alone, terrified of what might happen to them.
