He whispered to her one day, Depression did.
She was just reading in her room when
He creeped up and whispered in her ear,
"No one loves you."
She tried to shake it off.

He hit her one day, Depression did.

He took his fist and hit her in the heart.
"No one cares about you," he whispered.
So hurt by this, she went to bed early.

He fooled her one day, Depression did.
She was lying under her blankets when
He lied down next to her.
"No one loves or cares about you, but I do," he whispered.
She sunk farther inside her blankets.

He visited her every day now, Depression did,
Telling her his secrets and hitting her in the heart.
She felt suffocated, like she was drowning in sadness,
But she let him in again and again.

This is very well written. The message here can also be associated with any addiction. It's just how it works. You shut it out for ages, you struggle every day, then when you're not on your guard it happens and you are back there again. What a brilliant poem. This is so simple, so true.

I understand exactly what you are saying. It is like believing depression is helping when it is just killing you slowly and ever so painfully.
