Black&Blue

I'm lost in a world
That is not my own
Considering the population
How can I feel so alone?

In a place
Where the sun rises each day
How does darkness
Have it's way?

And, yet, it does.

Taking me over
Making me blind
I can feel
As it creeps in mind

It hides in the corners
And under your bed
It's in your house
And in your head

There is NO escape.

Smiles come
To ease the pain
But you can't save a person
Who's never been sane

My depression
Is everywhere
It's in my lungs
It fills the air

Why won't it go?

With gripping hands
It takes my throat
I'm too numb
To feel it choke

My heart
Is black and blue
So many bruises
If only you knew

When will it heal?

    Relates to me when I thought I could never be saved a couple of years ago, and the odd time I still feel that way. When the ones that saved me where taken away. I was lucky, in some cases, probably most cases, that depression never goes away. I'm hardly broken from back then. I new bat has hit me recently and sometimes I feel shattered, but as ost as I feel about it, things will most likely turn away. You are are great writer Brooklyn
