A Depression Poem by Chas
(DELCO - PA)
THE DEMONS OF DEPRESSION ARE AT IT AGAIN... WAKING ME FROM MY RESTLESS SLUMBER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT... GNAWING AWAY AT MY MIND, LIKE STARVING SATANIC HYENAS... I CAN NOT BEAR THIS TORTURE MUCH LONGER... MY WILL TO CONTINUE IS RAPIDLY EVAPORATING... A SINISTER SHROUD IS SUFFOCATING MY SOUL... PLEASE GOD MAKE THIS AGONY STOP... BEFORE I, MUST MAKE IT END.
You are clearly in a very dark, very lonely place. A place where so many of us have been before you. When we are in a place filled with hopelessness and despair, it is hard to see that there might be a way out ~ other than taking your destiny in your own hands.
There is so much support and love out there for you. You just have to be open to receiving it in your life and trust that it will come. It may not be obvious that its there but it will be and it will be known to you when you are ready to receive it.
One thing I noticed is that you are a very talented writer and to write from deep down in your heart like you've done is simply amazing. It seems like this may be a very good outlet for you. An outlet for you to identify with and process your deepest feelings so you can live a healthy, prosperous, happy life.
It is possible. It's always
possible. Find support, get treatment and you will feel so much better. I am so sorry you are feeling so down. But know that there is ALWAYS hope!
All my best,
