Depression

Depression overwhelms 
Like a blanket
Covering the sun
The world turns to darkness
An emotional tornado
Destruction in its wake

Scars continue to bleed
No band aid for the mind
No glue to piece it back
No instructions to rebuild

Accept it as a part of you
Hiding in the shadows 
Of your self-conscious

Like and old lover 
You want it gone
But never forgetting

It is your inspiration
To write these words in blood
It is your muse
Jumble words together to reuse

I have been writing poetry since a teenager but did not have the courage to really show it off. It wasn't until I had some tools as I battled depression and mental illness. They are still a part of me, which you will see for yourself. My writing is dark and raw.
