Trapped – a poem about depression
My silent screams go unnoticed,
My darkened dreams unchecked;
This emptiness is all consuming,
Will it steal away my breath?
Everything around turns to grey,
I’m not sure if I should resist;
As color slowly fades away,
This numbness only persists.
Silence can be so much louder
Than any spoken word;
So all these days will pass me by,
My thoughts still left unheard.
I thought my only option left
Was to end my precious life;
So I planned to step off of a ledge;
Or make friends with a knife.
As I lay upon the blood-stained floor,
I wonder what I’ve done;
The devil looks in through my door
And steals another one.
