Drowning in Darkness


The way she looks, I cannot compare
to the darkest day of the year.
Sadness drips down her face
as she looks into the abyss.

Mean words run about her,
people pointing and laughing,
she runs away crying.
But home is not her safe haven.

The thoughts trickle through her mind,
as she wants to say goodbye.
She pulls out a piece of metal,
So soft but deadly.
It makes all of her sadness go away.

But depression is a war,
it's a fight against yourself.
Dreams turned into nightmares
and laughs turned into tears.
The pain never really goes away.

Depression is a war,
it's a great big sea.
There is no recovery,
it's like a disease.
