A poem about living with anxiety and depression

Why keep living while the walls around you fall

why keep breathing when theres nothing left at all

so many hopes

so many dreams

my life it fizzled

my world grows so dark

like a satin sheet that covers my heart

what is there left to live for without the sun

without the light

its just the dark forver night

My mind confused

my heartbeat weak

endless nights of losing sleep

im running from my fears

theyre gaining ground

im screaming in silence 

i make no sound

anxiety prickles deep within my skin

my darkest thoughts are pulling me in 

im falling under

barried alive

this depression it eats me

it guts me inside

depression keeps me locked in myself

Im crying im screaming im begging for help
