Alone and torn deep inside
too many nights when eyes have cried.
Frustration building need to scream,
what’s on the outside is not as it seems.
Conflicting emotions running rife,
this is no way to live ones life.
Always guarded what we say,
words get twisted any way.
Anger shining in the eyes,
over time breaks loving ties.
Self control is getting thin,
the mirror shows torment within.
Dark thoughts echo across the face,
there’s no escaping from this place.
Ripped apart and barely holding together,
I hope this curse won’t last forever.
At some point in our lives Depression is a part of life. No matter if it be ourselves or someone we love. This poem is for all those who know how it feels and to try and help others to see the nightmare we go through on a daily basis. Depression is a terrible and cruel thing to suffer.
