Depression follows you, lying in wait. (am having issues with the format, it's not letting me make separate paragraphs at the moment, am working on it)

This cold feeling doesn’t leave
It is my second shadow
And my darkest one at that
Surrounded by others I can pretend I’m not haunted
But my own form of a demon is always with me
It waits for the moment I am alone
Then the charade my life has become is dropped
It envelops me and I crumble
The bright light exposes my secret dying
At long last someone has noticed it
They don’t know how to save me
Together we make believe
In hope that we will learn to believe our own lie
Because if you pretend everything is fine
It has to be, eventually
Right?
