The Darkness

The darkness fills my mind

It chews me up

And spits me out

In this darkness

I can no longer see

I can no longer feel

I can no longer move

I can no longer breathe

I’m suffocating

In my own darkness

I can see the light

But I can never reach it

This abyss of darkness

Has claimed my life

It has claimed my soul

Why can’t anyone see my darkness?

Why won’t anyone help me walk to the light?

I can’t bare it anymore

I just want to let go

And let the darkness take over

I can’t fight anymore

I have lost the war

This poem is about depression and what it feels like to suffer from depression on a daily basis. It never really leaves you, it just hides and waits for the perfect time to attack.

“Depression is like a war. You either win or die trying”
