Depression and anxiety

When brought to you it brings you undue stress
Unwelcome guest that turns the soul to red
It comes upon you in your minds address
A barrier with chains that have been bled

Suffocation that starts a loudly tick
You wrap the condition around your life
You rustle the sheets, and no sleep--lungs kick
And throw away chances--sharp as a knife

One will claw you, and another will pull
An endless battle--only you alone
Mind is scattered, try to keep a handful
Words can not escape, I miss my own tone

At my own hands I sink and fall and drown
Surrendering to the trench that keeps me down
