Depression Poem

Written for all the years of depression everyone trying to tell me to just be normal get over it......

Life As I See It

© Linda
Life is a bitter sweet pill
I am forced to take against my will
Everyone trying to pull me
Back into so called reality
Why I ask what does it hold?
Donít they see I have nothing I am so cold
My veins have no heat pumping through
My depression makes everything a shaded hue
In my heart I have no laughter, joy or love
I have prayed but there are no answers from above
My reality is not like other peoples seem to be
Silent screaming inside of me constant feelings of misery
Just want to withdraw into my own little safe haven
Just to be left alone and have people realize I am not worth saving
So please donít save me
I donít want to come back to your reality

  • This brought tears to my eyes. I suffer from depression.. I constantly think of suicide. There does not seem to be a reason to continue, yet I wake up every morning in fear that it would only be an attempt of death. But I see nothing in life, I'm so empty.. and I don't want to be ''saved''.
