Various complex and raw emotions of depression which can be a tad confusing. Meant to be hard to understand/relate to everything and may need re-reading. Didn't mean for it to be long, but somehow it came out like that. It's more for people with depression. Would love love love comments/improvements on it.

The black skies are storming,

Everything's so cold.

Shivering in the depths of despair,

They're telling me I'm pathetic,

But I can't help myself if that's all the world is.

The grey trees sway, I feel that tornado,

Please fly me away.

 

Buildings start corroding,

This place reeks of nightmares,

Consumed by harrowing inner demons,

I need to get out of here.

My physical self is faking a smile,

But my mind keeps repeating this unending precipice.

It becomes a part of me,

And it's all the same after awhile.

 

Spiral, spiral, spiralling down,

I'm always falling, falling, falling into the pit of darkness,

Let the abyss pull me down and under.

Swirling in the never-ending dilemma of paroxysms called emotions,

Slice up your heart they keep me drowning in a pool of tears.

Oh I can't breathe.

 

There's something I wanted but I can't think,

From all these confusions of my pressured ruptured heart.

Shredding, I'm crumbling into this hollow void of nothingness,

I want to scream out, cry out no I'm not fine!

Is it really my fault that I'm this way,

But they won't ever understand will they?

Telling me to get over things I think it's stupid.

 

I'm staring at this invisible something I realize is air.

Wanting to feel my soul lifting from my body,

Into the vortex of dreams and fantasies.

Hide away I will, in the plethora of melancholic misery.

How I wish I can stop these hallucinations that are out of control.

It's tearing me apart, squeezing me within,

And I want to stop my trembling heart from beating.

Hurry up and take me away from here.

 

Try to pull myself up and forward,

Block my heart from darkness within,

But I'm stuck in the tunnel and I can't see the light.

I want to surrender this visceral of desolation, but I don't want to,

That's how complicated my world is,

Do you understand?

Oh I stand in disarray.

 

Spinning, spinning, spinning around,

My head's dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in anxiety,

Tears are falling, wretched revolting,

Tie up my heart, stop it from bleeding in agony.

Bury me, I'm suffocating in devastation,

Numb that slough of pulverised hope,

Stuck in a miasma of despondency.

 

Death you say, it makes the world go dark,

And all I'm hoping is for the world to freeze up.

Stop time, I want to give up,

Go back to the past, start all over again,

But reality came to me too late,

Those wasted minutes are not going back.

Now I'm full of fears and regrets.

 

I'm just staring at this invisible something I realize is air.

Starting dreaming I believed it was real,

Time stops there, but reality's moving.

I'm just living in my own little box,

Where I'm the main character out to save the damn world,

But I'm killing and dying and running, out of breath.

 

Descending into an unknown world,

Where death could be calling out,

I'm thinking it's useless, there's no space for me,

Doesn't matter,

I wish to disappear.

 

Like the ancient movie screens,

The world's gone quiet and everything's black.

A flickering thought passed through my mind,

What I wanted was for someone to be there.
