I only wanted
But my heart
Because my love
Like a piece of garbage
And now I'm unable
Because the shreds
Of my shattered soul

Depression,what is depression?Its a ball in chain on your neck and throat as you walk-talk-breath and wake,that moves with you like the shadow that you see and feel,like the sounds you hear,day and night,from dusk till dawn.Depression,what is depression?Its a constant state of truth and dare,of wanting more but getting less,its the cloud filled with the sorrow of childrens tears,shattering souls thats made of steel.Depression,what is depression?Its the end of dreams and the start of none,the dark void inside thats never filled,its the soul that never found oneself.Depression,what is depression?
Only MeWhat would it feel like,Only Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To just disappear.
You wouldn't know,
If you just weren't here.
There is no feeling,
Because you can't feel.
You can't interpret.
You just aren't real.
It's so lonely here,
Where you used to be.
I look around,
But it's only me.

And I don't breathe back in
Days when patience is running thin
Sick with guilt and selfish
Acting out pure butchery
on pale now marked skin
Sit and stare and watch
Giving is forgiveness
And move on

Those that want to harm.
Protect me from liars,
Using me for their good.
Protect me from my heart,
It's so easy to break.
Protect me from the voice,
She has such anger.
Protect me from depression,
It can overwhelm.
Protect me from myself,
I'm the biggest threat.

Depression.........It's a sunny day outside.Depression.........6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I should go out,
Not just sit around in my room and hide.
I try to make myself get out of bed.
And I succeed.
But I am still trapped inside of my head.
The more I think,
The more I try,
To convince myself that I am alright.
The more I convince myself,
The more I feel,
That nothing else is real.
Besides this pain.
I think I might be going a little insane.
And excuse me friend,
Could you draw a smile on this paper bag I am wearing?
After all you're the one I am trying,
To hide all of my feelings from.
This never ends does it?
I feel useless.
Maybe I should just let go now,
But I still cling onto what little hope,
And that is how,
Things might be.
Just one more breath.
One more day,
I am closer to my own death.
He is FaithfulGod believed in me, knowing one day I would choose to stop believing in Him.He is Faithful1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
He was always with me, knowing one day I would carve 'alone' into my skin.
He always pursued me, even when I aimlessly walked away from Him.
He prepared a place for me, knowing one day I would run straight toward destruction.
He called my name, even when I was too deaf to hear Him.
He gave me His Truth, knowing I would believe countless lies about myself.
He provided food for me, knowing one day I would make myself throw it up.
He kept loving me, knowing exactly how many times I'd cut into my skin.
He held me close, knowing I would scream and cry for the only comfort I knew.
He carried me, when I couldn't possibly walk on my own.
He gave me life, knowing someday I would attempt to end it.
He took care of me, even when satan had his grip on me.
He calls me beautiful, even though He saw each scar I would make before I made them.
He willingly bled for me, knowing I would bleed for my own emotions.
He was faithful

Dear DepressionDear Depression4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When did you start?
To be honest I don't really know, but I do know I am ready for you to leave.
You make me overeat and want to do nothing but sleep.
I am sad all the time.
I have no where to go.
I have no where to run.
I wish I could go back to the times when I still had fun.
You make me yell.
You make me cry.
You make me want to forget about life.
I use to have so much to live for.
I had so much ambition.
Now I keep these feelings hidden because I fear people will only think I want attention.
Depression you are not my friend.
Go back to where you came from.
You are not welcome here.
Nor do I want you near.
When will all this stop?
I want this to end.
I want to be free.
I want to be me.
The me no one sees.

there are no funerals
for the flesh
for the mind
no curtains & no cremations
for all our pretty words
you can't save every patient
a corpse would warm your bed
