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…
