Depression - Poem by (De Va)

You steal my soul and hide it in the deep
You take my heart away to turn me into a sheep
You come in the night and rape my mind
You peel my imagination like a rind

Depression consumes my soul and empties me of essence
Depression takes the fire of my passion leaving senescence
Depression sets me in a prison in the deep dark dank
Depression fills me with tears because of his prank

Monster deep in the darkness on a starless night
Monster flying e'er so low on a maiden flight
Monster claws upon my limpid body as I try to escape
Monster in my soul, to me it such hideous rape

    I agree with everyone else, depression is like a drug keeping you in the dark, never letting go. Until finally someone showing you the light! Great poem filled with so much emotion! (Report) Reply

    A truly fantastic poem. Beating the demons is
    hard but it can be done. Its something you
    just have to keep fighting against. A great write.
