Depression is like a crippling disease,
slowly spreading as an inconspicuous nuisance
What starts out as apathy quickly changes into swinging blues
Fluctuating as a barometer,
experiencing fleeting moments of highs
followed by eternities of lows, even as
willful wishes won’t change a damned thing.
It isn’t a crippling disease; it’s a parasite
sucking me dry until I plead for a death that never comes.

“Depression is the constant feeling of being numb. Being numb to emotions, being numb to life. You wake up in the morning just to go back to bed again.” -Healthy Place
