Deep with in this brain
Lurks a woman quite insane
She rips and tares and eats my soul
Slipping out she takes control
Ruthless and reckless she is not shy
Over takes my thoughts and fly's
Darker planes I've never known
I sometimes feel no one's home

People stare or so it seems
And I wonder if I'm imagining
She has my mind all turned around
Pulling me into the ground
How I wish she was not there
She makes me feel that I don't care

That bit of dust that's on the shelf
A mountain to her, but to no one else
She yells and screams and stomps about
I wish that I could kick her out

She sits and cry's for days on end
When I am happy she turns up again
Pulling me down in to a pit
So dark and deep I see no end to it
And nothing left of myself I see
She takes the very best from me

Its as I've been on a binge
But never a drop has entered in
I walk around all hung over
Yet all this time I'm cold sober

She has all the fun, so it seems
leaving me for the rude awaking
Till all feelings are gone from me
Including her insanity

She does not stop to take a breath
My mind, her mind, is on death
Through her eyes there is no light
Until that time she goes away
I pray to make through today

Pain is what she is,
she is what she gives
In my brain she lives
I am not myself today

Depression by what ever name its called
is something that effects all of us..
Lets try to listen to a friend when they call

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If with pen in hand I've made you think
I've not wasted one drop of ink
Vlh.
