Depression

By breathingbelow

After a long day I try to rest my mind

But even after all this sleep, an empty void remains inside

So much things I want to do and be 

But my inner thoughts
torment me

They force me to turn back on my dreams; to press rewind

I always find myself in the same corner of my room everyday

The thought of going out sounds okay

But when the chance comes along I just want to run away

I want you close by me

But I push you away

Why do I despise your affection towards me?

I never wanted to hurt you or cause you pain

But I end up rejecting you and leaving you out in the rain

I'm sorry that it has to be this way

This unbearable pain just seems to morph into hate

I dwell on my thoughts everyday trying to change

But I feel like at some point I'll just go insane 

I'm wondering when it'll be more than I can take

If I'm left with no choice but to lay it all down

I want you to know that you didn't let me down

And I hope that you can let me go in peace

Let me go safe and sound

    Welcome to DP and I can only suggest that you not drive away any help mates, or you will really be left alone to stew in toxic juices, freshly brewed daily. Life is a grand experiment and we are all mad scientists. Cheers BB! - Dan

    This definitely struck a chord with me. It's a dark pool to get lost in but getting out is worth it, and there are always people around to help. Thank you this was a good read.

    It’s hard to explain depression to someone who has never experienced it. Like an invisible albatross dragging you down to the deepest part of the sea. Well written.

    Perhaps the best thing for depression is having someone who understands and cares . Who talks and listens to you anytime any where .
