Sinking

As depression sinks in,
you ask whats wrong.
my mind floods with answers

my mind drowns in lies
all too dumb to say
my mind dies in confusion
too insane to untangle.

Egg Nog

Some say Egg Nog,
will warm the night,
and make you happy,
if it's spiked just right.
Maybe this Christmas,
I will give it a try,
to help rid the depression,
and keep my season bright.

Laugh Why Not

The world can bring on a hell of a depression
You feel like you’re in an oppression
So I’d rather make you laugh
Even for a minute or a half
To disconnect you from realities connection

Self Diagnosis

Before diagnosing yourself with low self esteem
or maybe possibly with depression,
first make sure that you're not surrounded by assholes.
They can cause you to display the very same symptoms.


Short Depression poem by Jenni Dreese| Details |

Eventually

frowns show depression
smiles show an expression
tears show the pain
and kisses are in vain
his heart is not for you
though you don't know it
but soon enough his actions will show 
it


Short Depression poem by Jenny Lu| Details |

Empty

Dying from exhaustion, pain, anguish,
hype, anxiety, depression,
death and more
searching for one word.
giving it up
to all
slowly, the breath takes no more
and there you see a corpse.


Short Depression poem by courteney horn| Details |

sadness is

sadness is depression,
when people cut their wrist.
sadness is plotting,
and people writing hit-lists.
sadness is hate,
while happiness is bliss.
sadness is reality,
waking to morning mist.


Short Depression poem by Holly Maxwell| Details |

The Feeling

Take a deep look at me.
Do you like what you see?
Do you see the depression
That's deep within me?
Can you relate to how I/m feeling
Or what I'm seeing?
You can't. 
You simply never will!

Short Depression poem by bridget bennett| Details |

Nighttime

it sets in 
now we begin
depression
obsession
just to write
take away the fright
waste away to the night
done 
completely spun
dirty bassline
you're too kind
it was written
just to make her smitten.

Depression Hurts

Tears
Pain 
Anger
Depression

Controls your body
Takes over
Uncontrollable
I'm not myself

Feelings
Thoughts
Worries
Broken

Can't concentrate
Body throbbing
Burning up
Going to fall

Depression is painful


Short Depression poem by erica buckner| Details |

Sisters forever

Sleepless nights.
Pillow fights.
Laughter,
tears,
bravery,
fear.
Tension,
depression.
Heartbreak,
aggression.
If we stick together,
we can make it through.
Because there's no fun,
without a "u"


Short Depression poem by Contina Savage| Details |

A Tiny Doorway

A tiny doorway 
of the forehead is the anxiety and depression 
of a woman writer and bishop.
One day this doorway fell 
to touch the mouth
of the woman.
It relieve the woman
from care and suffering.
