Depression (from “Naked & True, Vol. 1”)

it takes your soul
energy is gone
strength loses control
sleep calls after you
shouting without reason
each mood is like a nonstop demon
harassing you
taunting you
bullying your thoughts
stealing your happiness
holding on tight
giving you spasms that refuse to rest
it makes you cry, scream, and shout
it takes your hunger
it quiets your mouth
meditation does not help you
counting to ten
doesn’t believe you
each day is harder and harder
the pain
the agony
the loss of sensation to live
it greets you by the door
and you have no choice
but to let it in
