Depression

The Experience of Depression

Big black hole

You’re the only one I truly know

And as I yearn for life’s glow

You continue to grow

You’re by my side at each step as I go

Knowing that you’re the only one I really know

You’re big, dark, and ugly, in whom I’m simply a casualty

It is from you that I someday wish to be free

My world appears as dark as you are

Because away from me, you never seem to go far

With each breath that I take and each person I help

I’m convinced I don’t matter, that my words are never felt

And as each day passes by, with you by my side

I know that from you there’s nowhere to hide

Though others have loved me, it is you who has stayed

I feel comfort in knowing you won’t ever go away

Into you, it is clear that someday I will fade

The only gift you can give is to take me away

And as my ending on Earth continues to draw near

It is only you whom I know, whom I only see clear

As my ashes and dust will someday be scattered

I continue to hope that what I’ve done somehow has mattered

Because of you I’ll continue to believe that isn’t so

Big black hole, the only one whom I’ll ever truly know
