"They do not seem to me to be such; but if I am the Devil's chid, I will live then from the Devil." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Waking up to

the desire of going back to sleep,

only for eyes to never reopen this time.

Blank stares at

the while wall while holding back tears,

so desperate to fall.

Spending the day

aimlessly, in hopes of it going by quicker

to avoid staying conscious.

Thankful for the

setting sun, only to crawl into bed,

and more the process to start again.

The author's comments:

This piece is about how depression effects my will to be away and therefore makes me isolate myself, giving me only the desire to sleep.
