Paying a Visit

I still believe in patterns
I don't know about you
I remember this was the time
I was running to you
it was a Good Morning
I'm visited by the dark cloud again
as my depression sets in
It's here because I'm not hiding anymore
I don't think it was every really gone
I would just ignore everything around me
and pretend
I'm oh so good at pretending
I doing all that I used to 
I'm writing 
I'm daydreaming
I'm giving out hopeless thoughts
knowing that no one reads
but it's good for me
One day I'll be able to balance the two
but only if I'm not buried first
I need you to understand me
and accept how I feel
All I want is a listening ear 
and a shoulder to cry on
Not someone that's going to fight 
in order to fix it
I can do that on my own
I need emotional support
and I know you do to
I hope this forecast is just passing
and this depression isn't here to stay
