Why can't you just be happy?
My brain is hardwired for sadness
You look tired. Are you sleeping?
Sometimes. It's hard to fall asleep
Why is it so hard to fall asleep?
Insomnia often accompanies depression
Why don't you go out?
I don't like going out
It's not like I don't want to, I just don't feel like going.
Does anything make you happy?
Not anymore. It's like I've gone numb
I can't put it into words
It's like I'm drowning, but I'm on dry land
I'm screaming, but no one can hear me
Everything is happening around me
But I am trapped, I can't move
I am a prisoner of my own min
And no matter how many times I try to escape
I am always pulled back in
Like the current of a riptide
If any type of hell
Or purgatory existed
It would be here and now
Trapped inside of myself
Surrounded by darkness
With no hope of escape
