My Depression Is.........My Depression Is....
An impenetrable blanket of darkness
Crushing down on me.
Stealing the air from my lungs,
Whispering, "You'll never be free."
A fortress of stone
Confining my heart.
Constricting my veins,
Holding me hostage.
An evil entity,
Imprisoning my soul.
Torturing me silently,
Laughing eyes black as coal.
A crushing wave,
Destroying the sandcastles of my sanity.
Pulling me deeper,
Trapping me under an icy sea.
A million burning tears,
Blistering my once pretty face.
Searing the message into my mind,
Reminding me I've fallen from grace.
A crowded room,
Mocking my lonely life.
Brimming with a happiness I could never touch,
Edging me closer to the knife.
An ex-Angel's mangled wings,
Taunting me with memories of flying.
Plummeting me past rock bottom,
Knowing I am slowly dying.
An old friend's laughter,
Echoing in my ears.
Unfading even as I realize I'm alone,
Finding bittersweet memories of happier years.
A constant intoxication,
Enchanting me with smoke to keep me real.
