excerpt from my novel might be the most accurate depression description i’ve ever written

I sunk to the ground, suddenly overcome by the wave of exhaustion I had been missing.  I leaned against the chain link and felt hot, numb tears spilling endlessly down my face.  I cried for what could have been hours, unable to muster the energy even to sob or accompany my weeping with emotions of sadness.  I was so utterly drained.  An empty being leaking onto the pavement.  Tears were all that was left within me.
