Broken and confused

by vincent   Oct 2, 2016

A shadow forms in my mind,
dark and mysterious it lurks from behind.
My heart beats faster as it slowly eats me.
This is real, how bad can it be?
I tried to hide it with a smile,
but it only lasts for awhile.
Drown it with a drink they say,
but wine didn't make it go away.
The angst and pain worsen day by day.
So hard to get over it, can't even understand why.
Where did I go wrong?
I thought I was strong.
Yet there you are, you've been gone
so long..

    A fantastic write.
    I don't ever think depression will be gone completely but that we learn to live with it and deal with it better and head on.

    All the best, Em

      Glad you like em, few errors but its a start.. Yeah best way to live with depression is to acknowledge it and ofcourse acceptance, that things will never go back the way we like them to.
