Depression of Black and White

Depression of Black and White

A Poem by Mason Rayburn

I am the black to your white

I am the wrong to your right

I am the up for when you are down

I am the stop for when life spins you round

I am the escape for when life imprisons you

I am your comfort when you feel like a fool

 

But I am the one who will bring you down

I am the one who will spin you round

I am the one who will make you feel trapped

The comfort you feel is my way to distract

From my black permeating your white

From my darkness consuming your light

 

You are the one who deserves a man

That doesn’t spend time scheming a plan

You are the one who deserves a bed

Filled with roses not wilted by dread

You are the one who deserves to be happy

Not depressed by a man who radiates apathy
