Depression is cold

Its icy grip suffocating me

Choking me, strangling me

Until I am no more


Depression is sickly

The cancer growing strong

Taking over my body

Slowly ending my life


Depression is a rapist

Violating my body,

My innocent soul,

Not yet ready to take such pain


Depression is cruel

Dangling hope before my eyes

And snatching it away again

And again

And again

Until it throws it out the window

And into the darkness below


Depression is my life.

And soon, my death…
