What is depression really? Is there one concrete definition, or has the meaning loosened as our generation has continued it's downhill descent? To me, depression is simply my life. I'm not suicidal. I'm not a cutter. I don't hate the world. I don't dress completely in black. I'm just sad. I've been sad for what feels like my entire life, but that's not true. I was happy once and I can vaguely remember what it felt like, but I can't touch it. I can't get that happiness back, I don't know how. That's what depression is to me, knowing what happiness is, but never being able to touch it, to feel it.- Jenny Leigh

There's a certain rhythm to the rain
All of my thoughts, fading away
Rivulets streaking through the pain
Coagulating into puddles where I lay
My memories are drowning
Down, down, across the floor
Still it won't stop raining
I'm forgetting what I've fallen for
I can't remember now
If this rain is the sky's tears or mine
I don't know how
These dreams are washed away in time
And until the grey clouds clear
I will be waiting here
