Depression

Location

"What does it feel like?"

LIKE I'm in the middle of a thick forest with nothing but poison berries;

No food

No way out.

 

LIKE I'm trapped in a room with the person I hate most just attacking me both

physically

and

verbally.

They refuse to give me the key to get out.

They are me.

 

Like I fell into a

p

i

t

where you're supposed to find happiness at the bottom but never seem to get there.

 

LIKE I've fallen into quicksand

Everyone is telling you,

"Just get out."

You try but you just sink

It's like you have your own bully inside your mind.

It knows everything about you, and is just

a.t.t.a.c.k.i.n.g

you for it,

DiStOrTiNg

your body making you

insecure.

 

It is the process of over thinking something creating a new problem that wasn't there initially.

Knowing this, I still can't overcome it making me a

hypocritical

selfish

d'imW'i,t.

I'm left with this f e e l i n g

LIKE I have to live with this for the remaining years of my miserable life.

 

That's what it feels like.

Yes, yes! You couldn't have said it any other way. That's exactly what it feels like.
