I wrote this piece during a time where I was struggling with depression. I am sharing it to help others who may relate or have felt similarly.

You are not alone. As long as there’s breath in your lungs, there’s hope for a better tomorrow. ❤️


There’s an ache inside of me

That I can’t seem to escape

There’s a fracture in my heart

It shatters and it breaks

There’s a yearning in my bones

I just want to be whole

No matter how far I travel…

It never feels like Home

How do you smile when you don’t even know who you are anymore?

And how do you open up your heart, when you lost the key to the door?

I keep telling myself that one day

“It’ll all get better.”

I don’t know how much longer I can lie.

I can’t live like this forever.

So tell me: how do you live when all you are is a Ghost?
