Depression

Depression

Not wanting to live,
But not wanting to die,
Drowning in your own thoughts,
And wanting to cry.
Very low spirited,
Day after day,
Not being able to sleep,
When in bed you lay.
Irritable and impatient,
Feeling full of despair,
Even when you awake,
You’re in a nightmare.
Distancing yourself from others,
And finding it difficult to speak,
Thinking what is the point?
As the future seems bleak.
Wanting to self harm,
Battling with anxiety,
Listening to repetitive thoughts,
While sitting there so silently.
Tired with no energy,
You cant cope with the stress,
You cant make no decisions,
As your mind is a mess.
One in five get depression,
So alone you are not,
And you will get through it,
Even if your mind says you cannot.

Broken Idol

Broken Idol


It’s you I look up to,
It’s you I desire to be,
But you don’t care.
You never notice me,
What have I done?
Why is this?
Why don’t I exist?
To yourself?
You’re ignoring me,
Even when I plea,
I’m crying to myself,
I just want you to see,
What you’re doing to me,
On the inside I’m hurting,
From the pain your asserting,
Where’s the comfort?
Where’s the help?
Of this I’m not deserving,
No longer will I plead,
You don’t want me,
I’ve finally agreed,
That it’s me you don’t need,
I won’t be suicidal,
I’ll stand up strong,
You were my idol,
But now you’re gone,
My life you departed,
When it had only just started,
I’m over you,
Just left broken-hearted……
