An Ode To Depression


I let you in, under my skin

Keeping you all for all time, but became a mime

Inviting you to go, you said no

Then want you to stay, hope I can live this way

A bird in a cage, filled with rage

Damn depression you suck, with you I’m stuck

Confusing my reality, set me free

The cycle is just insane, but yet you’re my bane

I push you away, beg you to stay

I must except this reality, you’ll never let me be

Afraid what I’ll find, in my mind

The fog keeps me in denial, it makes me so vile

Continuing I cope, filled with hope

That one day I’ll be free, no longer a you and me©

  1. Poignant write. Depression is indeed terrible.

  2. Lovely words for such a terrible affliction.

  3. The composition is really at its fine way,
    Expression said it all,
    Really beautiful
    God bless 🙂

  4. That is definitely depression in a nutshell. You hit the nail on the head with this one, Mac.

  5. Reblogged this on It's Yet Another Blogger and commented:
    Always enjoy readying Mac from Southern by Design’s poetry. It’s always so beautiful, even when describing such an awful subject area. This poem is definitely something I can relate to and feel like Mac, you describe it perfectly!
