Depression (True Story)

My depression grows everyday, It started as a come and go, It decided to stay and create a black cloud, All I can do, Is sit and hope, Wish and dream, Cry and smile, I fake these looks for my family, They feel responsible, Like they caused my pain, Truth is, No one caused it, It just came, because a boy, I loved, Died, All alone, All my fault, Not being there, I was so stupid, So young, I yelled at him, Told him i hated him, Told him to leave me and never come back, His friends came and got him, They drove him home, He decided to come back to see me, My fault, My fight caused, His death, He tried to get to me, A car smashed his, Head trama, Lungs smashed, Face scared, Last words said, I hate you, I rushed to his side, Last thing i hear, I love you, Never forget me, He passed away, In my arms, Me in tears, Unable to tell him, I love you too, Never could I forget you, Your my heart, My soul, You'll always be with me<3

    That is a very emotional write...He told you that he loved you to me that says that he forgave you...I can understand that you could not say that you loved him also at the time...I am sure that he felt your caring when you held him whatever that care was be it sorrow for what you said last, sorrow for the accident, or that you really loved him..If this doesn't get better you should seek professional help.

    This really just attached to my head, I read it this morning, but I've read it like twice since then. I'd love to see more, so keep it coming, and I'm really, really, really sorry this happened... Here for support, luv. Message me if you need it.

    my depression came in waves. 300 times a day that shadow would fall on me, and drive me to my knees while i was still standing. sundays i sat in the chior stand all teary eyed the whole time my mom, the preacher preached. then i asked God to help stop it, and little by little He did. you'll get better someday. john
