Depression is ugly. Getting rid of it is worse.

Hold the other end of this will you?


My inspiration has been drained.

Awake, but tired again, it's a

Struggle just to make it through the day.

I need so much

I want nothing

I need the help of a dozen trained professionals,

Sitting, staring, analyzing my every breath.

Can It get better before it gets worse?

"It can always get worse" that's what I have been told.

THAT is the scariest fucking thing anyone has ever said to me.

My life is a pain kaleidoscope,

A pharmaceutical buffet line

Approaching the dessert cart

Just looking for a stronger rope.



I am surrounding myself with depression

I bathe in it every morning and kiss it with an open

Mouth before I fall asleep... It is the only thing I have

That stays constant.......... I will miss it when its gone

Really like the kaleidoscope bit - really like the end of it all together...

As long as I get one, maybe two good lines out of a poem I'm happy. The goal of course is to make one really good one. I haven't even come close yet but the best part is trying.

You've captured many of the emotions very well.
(I have written similarly on this topic in some of my poems too....Painful subject, all to familiar, but it does bring out the poet)
Well written. I'll be keeping my eye out for more of your writing!

You had me at the first line, and certainly kept my attention throughout. Pessimism and depression have surely given you inspiration in this one. Well done, I liked it.

pessimism and depression is my crack!

I cant go a day a without either one.

i wish i was kidding.

its a terrible feeling, and i agree recovering is much harder then just being depressed.
Great and powerful way of capturing an emotion/time in your life you can only understand if you have been there
