Deep End

So much has been on my mind...
Making contentment impossible to find.
I can't just sit back, relax, & unwind.
I always tend to get caught in a bind.
The old me has been left behind.

Crippled by fear.
The evidence is clear.
Where there once was a smile, now there are tears.
I scream for help & no-one hears.
My depression has become so severe...
I'd give anything to make it disappear.

In half, I'm starting to bend.
Further & further down, I descend.
It's becoming difficult for me to pretend...
that I'm not drowning in the deep end.
