Depression...

No, depression is not just getting sad.
It's a constant sadness that melts into your bones,
An indescribably heavy weight upon your shoulders,
Never mind your heart and soul.
It's believing so many lies (maybe because you've learned to accept them)
And no longer appreciating your self-worth.
Wishing you no longer existed, wishing yourself gone.
Depression holds you back from your dreams
And pulls you into a nightmare.
It takes full control of your existence.
It makes you never want to get out of bed,
And when you finally do,
You just want to get back in it.
But you know the hardest part?
Ignorant people.
Just.
Like.
You.
It's not just getting sad.
It's pain.

I know it doesn't rhyme, but it's a rant. =P

ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND

So damn true... people think Depression is JUST sadness, but it's so much more. It's a pain in the butt, it's difficult and a burden to live with. Most people can't understand it until they go through it.
JuliaEn's avatar
oh yes! so true... unfortunately
anime12violet's avatar
ignorant people wouldn't even bother to read this
PurrfectlyKind's avatar
This is so true. Cause I am feeling it now. :(

It Doesnt have to Rhyme. It projects your feelings and they are strong here.
Drawlicios's avatar
I can't agree with it more. I don't know whether I'm depressed or not, I have no idea. Maybe because I feel like this for quite a few years.
Ah well, at least now there's someone in my life that's there for me. :)

I can identify with your words and feeling. Rhyming doesn't matter; striking a chord of truth does. Thanks for giving voice to depression.

i spent perhaps three years in a minor depression and it was terrible, but my mom had it full blow. we were in a terrible house, with bad heating and all she would do was read in her bed. i think me and my siblings are the only thing that got her to move through the mess that we werent willing to clean up.

i never want to be there again.

and it doesn't need to rhym. this is one of the better poems i've heard. its beautifully worded and structured and it flows amazingly. the rythm is great and it really shows the reader what you're thinking.

It doesn't rhyme, but it has the ring of truth. People who had never had to fight depression, can't know what kind of poison it is like, and you've described it to them all.
roxyrapp's avatar
I have to agree with you.
12 years old
Depressed for three years.

I've dealt with depression for years and am more or less getting over it. this is such an accurate and beautiful description of it. Couldn't have said it better or more beautifully myself. thank you <3

Sometimes i talk about depression with people who are depressed.
but too often, people assume i don't know what it feels like, because i have apparently never been depressed.
this is not true though. Far more people have suffered from depression - than will admit to it.
It is a good description, very well done.

It doesn't rhyme, but it echoed heavily in my mind. I like it. :clap:

God, thank you. This is spot on and I want to show it to all the ignorant people in my life who tell me to just 'get over it'
