morose

A morose person is sullen, gloomy, sad, glum, and depressed — not a happy camper.

When someone is morose, they seem to have a cloud of sadness hanging over them. This word is stronger than just sadmorose implies being extremely gloomy and depressed. We all can be morose at times, like after the death of a friend or family member. Whether you're morose due to an event or just because you're feeling blue, you should try skipping or whistling a little tune to perk things up.
