Depression

Depression

A Poem by Lexi Richard

I've downed a thousand pills
and relearned how to take a breath
I've sold my soul to therapy,
yet still wish I was dead

its hard for me to fall asleep
because I think of knives and ropes
or about the boy I never had
and how he crushed my hopes

I've turned my friends to enemies,
beat my heart 'til it was sore
I've saved myself a thousand times
each time wishing I didn't more
