Depression always trying to take hold

I’m always fighting to stay one step ahead

To scared to let it enfold me

Don’t know where the destruction

Will take me

Or if I will be able to escape it again

Its like living in darkness

Stuck in limbo all on my own

Hearing voices with no

True meaning


Secluded from life

My world is grey

Sunshine does not warm me

Kind words offers no comfort

Stuck in this mental prison

It keeps pulling me deeper

The end result scares me

Like strong hands pulling

Trying to capture the sanity in me

A poison flowing through me

A powerful opponent

Like someone negative living

Deep inside me

Trying to take over

Until the real me no longer exsist

I think that your poem encapsulates many people's struggles with depression. It was straightforward and "unadorned" but good in its ability to convey the thoughts.
