“Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced.
It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again.
The absence of hope.
That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad.
Sad hurts but it’s a healthy feeling.
It is a necessary thing to feel.
Depression is very different.”

"Life Of Depression"


Harsh words, violent blows

Hidden secrets, nobody knows

Eyes are open, hands are fisted

Deep inside I'm warped and twisted


So many gambits, so many lies

Too many whens, too many whys

Nobody is special, nobody is gifted

I'm just me, warped and twisted


Sleeping awake and choking on a dream

Listening loudly to a silent scream

Call my mind, the number is unlisted

Lost in someone so warped and twisted


On my knees, alive but dead

Look at the invisible blood I have bled

I'm not gone, my mind has drifted

Don't expect much, I'm warped and twisted


Burnt out, wasted, empty and hollow

Today is just yesterday's tomorrow

The sun died out, the ashes sifted

I'm still here, warped and twisted.
