Enclosure
 
My depression has become a self-contained enclosure
 
It is something from which I cannot break free
 
My feelings come over me in swelling waves
 
I am like a fish caught in an underwater sea
 
My dark room is my only sanctuary left
 
I retreat to it nightly for my protection
 
If a broken heart is a fevered disease
 
Then you are my incurable infection
 
I sink within myself as my only companion
 
No one else wants to be by my side
 
I always hurt myself with stupidity
 
Offering my love but it is always denied
 
My depression has become a self-contained enclosure
 
There is only one way out of it that I can see
 
Instead of waiting for death to come
 
I must fulfill my own destiny
