The Art of Depression: Evan Hall

Artist:

Evan Hall

“Return of King Melancholia”

Behold,

Bemoan,

Forebode,

Forewarn,  

Bleak the blackened gates open

King melancholia rides home

On his dread horse Morose.  

The misanthropes are at their old games,

Murdering pheasants in the once mirthful meadows,

Their howls drowning out the coo of the doves.

Bleak, bleak

This bittersweet day

Starless every night  

Lightless every day.  

Have loose  

The ghouls will play,

Plundering

Pillaging  

Plundering

Pillaging.

Siphoning my well of endless love

How I wished the vampiress  

Would have stayed.  

For it was her fangs I betrayed.
