Depression hurts
Thu, 11-22-2012 - 8:17pm

Depression swallows me whole as I lay here drowning in my sorrow.

  The waves of insecurity wash over me as darkness deepens around me.

 My dreams haunt my every waking and sleeping hour.


 Night after night I dream of death. Why must I feel this way?

As the waves of depression cover me I wonder if I’ll ever surface.

 Deeper and deeper into the deep blue sea of depression I go.


 My tears go unshed and they are weighing me down. The ocean of depression is pulling me into the undertow.

 Life comes at me like a raging river ready to destroy everything in its path.

 Slowly the hot lava of daily living burns me.
