Relapse

This depression lays on me
So thick I can't breathe
I feel sick
So I'll bleed out the infection
I'm just trying to wake up
Because this can't be who
I've let myself become

My thoughts are scattered and in pieces
I can't focus
I'm consumed by this inner struggle
Shadows clinging to my skin
Threatening to pull me in
And reopen the darkest corners of my mind

I'm trying to rebuild myself
But I'm still grieving a part of me that's gone
And I feel so alone
Because I can't talk about it

I've already come so far
I don't want to go back
I don't want to die inside
I just want to be finally free (of me)
