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
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”
She smiles as the wind caresses her hair
Her eyes shine as she looks up to the sky
She holds her teddy bear tightly in her hand
Her lips curl into a smile at the thought of life
She frowns at the thought of school
Her eyes fill with tears smudging her dark eyeliner
She pushes her dark dyed hair back
Her arms are filled with cuts
She’s been told she’s talentless again
Her songs are all she has
She dropped out of school years ago
Her music is her only hope
She lies on the ground ready to give up
Her phone rings on the couch
She picks it up thinking this is the last call she will ever receive
We want to sign you to our label
She is told by a distant voice
She performs for thousands of fans every night
Her eyes have got their shine back
She walks into her bedroom after kissing her kids goodnight
Her husband smiles and takes her into his arms
She’s finally truly content as she drifts off to sleep
When I was writing this poem, more than anything, I just wanted to show how quickly and drastically life can change sometimes. Also, sometimes it’s easier to give up on your dreams but the truth is dreams can come true even when you least expect it so you would rather just work really hard and achieve your dreams because that’s what’s important and that is what will give you real happiness. At the end of the day you should always do what you love and believe in yourself even when no one else does.
