Lost in the Shadows: A Poem of Depression and Despair

A Journey Through the Depths of Depression

By MAKING REAL MONEYPublished 9 months ago 1 min read

A Lonely Descent

Lost in the shadows of my mind,

I descend into the depths of sorrow,

A darkness that's hard to unwind,

A weight that I'll carry tomorrow.

My heart is heavy, my soul is tired,

And every breath feels like a struggle,

The hope I once had has expired,

Leaving me feeling lost and muddled.

I'm drowning in a sea of sadness,

Trying to find my way to the light,

But the waves of despair are madness,

Dragging me down with all their might.

I close my eyes and let it consume,

This feeling that I can't escape,

My heart aches with a deepening gloom,

And the tears begin to reshape.

I'm lost in the deep and dreamy,

A place where my heart can rest,

But this depression is so screamy,

It's hard to feel my best.

So I'll take it one day at a time,

Trusting that I'll find my way,

Out of this darkness and into the sublime,

Where the light will lead me astray.
