The darkness keeps me alone forever,
all alone with my thoughts,
wondering when this pain will disappear.
Always hiding away from everything around me.
Afraid to come out, for everyone will see all the things I hide.
Behind the eyes, black as night, lay all my secrets.
No one can ever know my secrets.
My eyes hide all the pain and the heart break.
Never keeping eye contact for too long,
for someone might see.
The darkness consumes me, it’s harder and harder to breathe.
I can’t run from the darkness within.
Afraid the demons will win.

Teens everywhere are battling with depression, and I am one of those teens. Teens that are battling depression can relate to this because it does feel like you have to hide all the time. There also, is tons of pain that we all try to hide with just a smile. We keep everything on the inside. This poem represents all those feelings we battle with.
