If They Only Knew

July 14, 2012

I observe as the sky cries its powerful tears
And slowly dance across my window pane
I weep in unison with the sky,
Wondering what my purpose is,
Wondering why I should live another day
Confusion scampered through my head
Agony enveloping its cool, darkened fingers over me
No one understandsā€¦
No one can seeā€¦
That the person sitting on this floor
Is not who I want to be
If only they knew
What is going on inside my head,
And that a peculiar voice is hissing its
Poisonous thoughts,
Making me imagine the world if I was dead

I wrote this piece when I was going through a dark depression... I hope that people who read this who are depressed finds strength within themselves to keep moving forward, no matter how difficult life may become.

 I can definitely relate to this. There was a period of a about two years when I was depressed.

 Great work! Describes the mood/thoughts of depressed people perfectly.
