i have depression and it isn’t tropical;
it can’t be treated on the outside;
it isn’t topical.
don’t laugh at my uncontrollable crying;
it isn’t comical.
it sticks to the heart like a barnacle;
i’m unable to navigate my thoughts;
i’m not nautical.
it’s a savage and seizes every
your tears will bleed from every
it’ll devour your heart like it was a
concentration is all over the place,
back and forth,
toggle, toggle, toggle…
i’m gonna chase the bottle
at full throttle
in hopes of temporary relief;
overcome, stay strong, diligent
victory will be most laudable.
