Black hole

Depression is like a black hole. Gravity so powerful it won’t let light escape. A heavy weight on my soul. Despite this gravity I still use all my might to stand.     I’ve seen so many fall along the way. Unseen victims of bullies and apathy All that is left is for them is […]

Am alive

Stareing

I feel them staring I can hear there laughter Their minds uncaring My paranoia builds hereafter   Anxiety fills my mind Are they talking about me? I feel confined Can’t they leave me be?   Do they look my way? Or is it just anxiety I must hold my fears at bay Just to function […]
