Depression is not just being sad, or scared. It’s much more. Depression is feeling worthless, being betrayed. Feeling that betrayal all the time. Not reaching out or being acknowledged. Giving scars when you feel no one’s your friend. Depression can not be cured with cuddles or being told “It’s going to be okay” because it is not going to be okay. Look deep and- wait, why am I telling you? You won’t even understand.

Depression is like feeling numb all the time. You’re smiling but it cannot hide the pain. Your whole body feels like a zombie. Too tired but you’re doing your best to survive. It feels like you’re stopping the rain from falling. You want to be dead but afraid to die. Having a lots of hopes and thinking you’re still hopeless.

Being loved but still feels like being alone. A lots of people you know can help you but you don’t have the courage to ask them because you feel like they don’t understand you. It’s like being happy then being sad at the same time.

You can’t understand yourself. You just want to escape from that pain you don’t even know where it from. It’s like everyday is a new life and a new battle you need to survive. A lot of things you want to say but you can’t. It’s like fighting yourself.

Who will fix me now
Tell me what I’ve done
Save me from myself
Don’t let me drown
Who will make me fight?
Drag me out alive
Save me from myself
Don’t let me drown.

Depression cannot be explained easily, people who don’t have it think it’s just sadness and tears but people who suffer from it know the whole story, life begins to feel too long, people tend to do things like smoking, drugs and drinking to try and make the numb, helpless feeling go away.
It’s the feeling where you want to tell someone how you feel but the fear of being judged and then regretting telling someone straight away.
It’s the feeling of guilt, worthlessness and the feeling that your dead inside but still living.
It controls your mind and destroys the person you are, it’s not something you can “Just get over”, you end up being your worst enemy.

Your pupils dilate as the room fills with darkness, searching for light, just as your soul dilates as your body fills with a dark emptiness in search of a light within, a reason, searching for the hole that your happiness bled from the skin you inhabit in the hopes you can patch that hole so you can slowly fill once again with internal light we call happiness, consciousness, hope, but most of all life.
