Can't you see?

Can't you see?

A Poem by SouthernBelle

It's hiding in my mind,

tellin' me to go and hide.

Sayin' they'll never find,

what I leave behind.


This knife that cuts my wrist.

The blood that pours from it.

Makes me have a fit,

away I drift.


I was never harmless,

now I go into the darkness.

I killed myself,

I was never a success.


As I lie in that bed,

almost dead,

the doctors try to save me,

Why won't they just let me be?


Nobody could see I was depressed,

I'm full of despair.

Just let me die.

Just let me die.


I was never pretty.

No special ability.

Why are so many crying?

What have I done?


As I stand beside my grave stone,

I'm still all alone.

I thought this is what I needed,

I wish I had never succeeded.


I want to hug everyone again,

I want to remain.

I need help,

I wish I could yelp.


As I open my eyes,

it was just a dream.

I'm still lying in that bed,

holding on to my life.


I look around,

I'm still alone.

Nobody knows,

Nobody cares.


Can't you see that I'm depressed?

I can't fake a smile any longer.

This is my cry for help,

I don't know what else to do.


There's demons inside of me,

their winning this battle.

If I don't get help,

I'll be gone forever.


Please don't ignore my pleas,

don't let me go.

Pull me back in,

before I go insane.


Can't you see that I'm depressed?

Can't you see I need help?

Why won't you help?

I can't fight this alone.


Can't you see that I'm depressed?

All I need is someone,

someone who cares,

someone to listen.


Can't you see that I'm depressed?

I'm slipping away,

Now I'm gone,

no one helped.


Nobody saw I was depressed,

nobody saw that I needed help.

They let me go,

They never helped.


Can't you tell that I'm depressed?

Please help.

I can't fake it anymore,

I'm going to snap.


Can't you tell that I'm depressed?

If so please help....

Hmm a very emotional poem, I was glad when I came to the part that it was a dream, but a little saddened that the reality stayed the same. Sometimes we need to take the first step, others may see that you are depressed but don't know how to help or how to approach the matter. That's how I see it anyway. Don't give up and don't be afraid to try and talk to someone, I know it may be hard sometimes because I had to deal with some of these feelings, but it's not worth staying in this depressed state. If you ever need someone to talk to feel free to send a message if you would like.

A powerful journey into the mind and thoughts. Depression is a part of all of us. Some can hide it and some people can't. People must find reasons to fight depression and go forward. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry. Left the reader with something to think about.

This is so fanciful and enchanting. I like how you used rhyme and the visual tone you created.
