Is your daughter depressed?

My mom’s friend asked her

after discovering that since

returning home last week,

I have left the house maybe

twice, possibly three times.

My mom laughed it off and

said no, that I just like the inside.

An indoor Camden she said.

She made no comment about

how I stay up till 5am, struggle

to get a full eight hours of sleep,

walk around in a blanket, and

frequently forget to shower,

brush my teeth, wash my hair,

and use my voice.

Years ago, Camden Rose brought her typewriter across the country to Seattle after completing degrees in marketing and creative writing at Elon University. She fell in love with the city and hasn't left since. She can often be found at the ocean's edge taking notes on the local mermaid population. She loves exploring nature and seeking out the magic hidden beneath the everyday world. Currently, she is working on various short stories, novels, and a master’s in education.
