The Ghost Of Depression :

On a dark night as I lay in bed or a bright day as people smile and wave
I feel the presence of something that used to be
Which makes me terrified that one day it will return again
How do I shut the door so it can’t come in when it’s locked in the darkness inside my mind?
Where do I hide when the depression tides rise
My feelings are bubbling on this full moon as the pain train takes control of the rails down old memory lane
Now I’m locked in the memories that once gave me this fear
Oh, what do I do when I have no one to hold dear or near to my broken heart or shattered bones?
Hears these words as I try to vanquish you
Dear ghost I will find a light in the darkness I call my mind
Even if it only for one night for the rest of my freaking life
