Depression

Depression

A Poem by LonlyKitty
"

Getting up and seeing the light

"
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Is it worse to be dead or alive?
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Is this the real thing or just a test drive?

Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Should I be happy that I actually feel something?
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
They say anything is better than nothing...

Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Is this just a phase I'm in?
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Maybe the best part its about to begin.

Emptiness, darkness, pain...
I can see the hope, but can I grasp it?
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
Its getting close, can I trust it?

Emptiness, darkness, pain...
I'm almost there, but the fear is rising.
Emptiness, darkness, pain...
F**k it, I'm gonna continue fighting!

...Emptiness, darkness, pain.
I can't feel them anymore.
Fulfillment, happiness, humane...
Finally got up and opened the door.

I like the repetition in this piece, almost represents how depression can consistently kick you down again and again. The ending is nice -- that little glimmer of hope!

Yes, that was my thought while I was writing it. Thank you for the review :)
I can feel the strong emotion that inspired your poem. The despair and struggle to find hope, battling with our thoughts and fighting just to get up...I can relate to this.
