a monster named mr. depression

please be quiet and lie still

we don’t know if it will come back to kill

with its sharp teeth and eyes that leak

it will swallow you whole regardless of the words you speak

i do not know why it hates us so

please try and stay on the down low

its skin is scaly and excessively dry

it hates everyone and cares not if you cry

its outlook is grim and its soul pitch black

what ever it takes is almost impossible to get back

i crossed its path some time ago

it snatched up my happiness and never let go
