Gone But Not

You are gone but not forgotten
Like a bad penny that keeps coming back
First you took and took from me
Now you just want to feel my heart crack

The journey through this life is hard
You would just ask for more than I can do
It’s not that I can’t handle the work
I just don’t want to give any more to you

You trick me with your little white lie
Tell me that you’ve left for good this time
But then with great triumphant zeal
Here you return and you, to make me mime

But I refuse to be your little puppet
Don’t want this life of mine lived on a string
You are gone for now and not missed
Depression, don’t want to be your play thing!

  3. Depression is a drag. Mine seems to be going away with the help of some good medicine ๐Ÿ™‚

    • i am able to keep mine under control with meds. but it does still flare up. one thing i never let myself forget is that i do have depression. like any chronic illness symptoms can be masked, but that doesn’t always mean that it won’t sneak up on me or flare up on me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. i though u were talking about a person till the end
