Taken By Depression

Why do I feel so very down?
Is this feeling going to last a long time?
I cannot laugh nor even a smile,
I hope the pain fades in a while.
My heads messed up, I cannot think,
Should i pop some pills or heavily drink?

I'm tired of *****like this,
I'm sure my chap is taking the Piss!!
Why is he doing this to me,
Flirting with my friends recently?
He says he loves me but does he I wanna know?
If he doesn't then **** it I'll just pack up and go.

I don't want to hurt anymore,
My life feels like one big chore.
I may aswell end it, no-one wants me here,
At least then my head will finally be clear.

I guess now is the time for me to go cos I cant feel any lower
than low.
I don't know if I'm ready to die but at least I will be with the Angels in the sky.

So goodbye to you all, I know I will see you again,
Finally I'm free...I see the light...Theres no more pain.

    Very heartfelt passionate Poem here Louise, I can certainly understand your sorrow and I think expressing it in this form as always a possitive way to address these feelings. My writing reflects my current state of mind and would appear that your's does as well. I enjoyed your poem and look forward to seeing more passion in your writing.

    Depression is a terrible illness..There is hope..A very simple thing can help with depression and that is walking..Exercise can help lift that sad mood..Sometimes depression is signaling that the person needs to make a change in their life and I don't mean ending it but it could be they need to make a growth spurt in learning, spirital growth, or some other aspect of their life..If one is associating with someone who is pulling one down find new friends..Sara
