Life As I See It

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?
Don't 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 people's 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 don't save me
I don't want to come back to your reality

I love the last 2 lines so much. There are people who I have no affection for, yet they're trying to "save" me by forcing me into a life I never desired. Your poem is so relatable and I feel like it expresses deep thoughts in a beautiful way. Thank you.

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'.
