Depression

And sometimes I just feel nothing
Except a dull pressure in my chest.
Nothing seems worth doing anymore.
What’s so great about being best?

The Darkness frightens me
And yet I embrace it still.
It’s easier than fighting
And postponing the final kill.

One thought on “Depression

  1. You know I heard a quote once. “If you don’t embrace the darkness in your soul, how would you welcome the light”.. I think the subject here is embracing his inner, darker self and just waiting for respite no matter how gruesome or grotesque it might be. Great post.
