Depression, it cuts me like a knife

The kind to cut steak and bone
Rejection, like a constant reminder

Of my biggest mistakes in life.   
Misery and sadness, go hand in hand to
Become my main feelings in this painful attack.
Fear, said to make one 'sick',  
Anger, said to make one hurt
And many more to fill in what the others haven't 
Every so often at night, they come
And destroy my emotions and my outlook on life.
The worst thing I feel when this happens
Is the fact that I don't want to tell a soul
About my problems, my pain, my demons

The edited version of the thread.

This happened to me once. And it was my first go at poetry.

Please tell me what you think.

Procrastination rules the nation!

I can completely relate to this. I have felt like this a few times myself, and unfortunately know exactly how it feels.

I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways to not succeed.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

Another poetic and very artistic piece. Very morbid look on depression and how it affects the body and mind.

“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again.”
― C. JoyBell C.

This is really, really, impressive and intriguing! I love the way you describe all the emotions, making the reader feel like they are experiencing this pain themself.

Lego ergo sum (Latin—I read, therefore, I am)
The pen is mightier than the sword—unknown
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity—1 Timothy 4:12

*whistle* Not sure I can say anything else. I'm thoroughly impressed.
