Never Ending

Endless cycle of darkness surrounds
Like the clouds before the storm
The light before the thunder
The ache before the pain
The days are all a blur and seem the same

Depression comes without a warning
No known symptoms 
No tell tale signs
Comes rushing in 
From all sides and different kinds

Endless dark road
Leaves you feeling sad
Dark and alone
Many have walked it
Many are still there
Yet because of the darkness
No one there but you

You push away others
In hopes to save them 
From the wrath that is
The illness

Yet again you find yourself
Yearning for their company
Yearning but afraid to ask
Can you pull off that mask?
Can you pull yourself up and out?
Can you keep it together or will
You let those voices that shout
In your mind win?

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.
