An Ode To Depression

Loving you is like welcoming cooling rains
After an endless summer fever.
Oh. So. Easy. It is.
And for the first time, I’m a believer.

Hating you is like shutting out a blizzard
During a harsh winter’s freeze.
Oh. So. Hard. To do.
And for the first time, I’m on my knees.

The perfect partner with which to dance
Taking lead for me to follow.
Step. Into. Line. On command.
As always, such a tough pill to swallow.

The secret confidante who knows all too well
Whispering the key to unlock.
Step. Outta. Line. Disobey orders.
As always, such an aberration, system shock.

Going up and down, forwards and backwards
With me forever, where ever I go in life
Mental. Illness. Sucks. To have.
For the rest of time, causing so much strife.

Cycling around and around, over and over
Making me who I am today.
Mental. Illness. Rocks. My world.
For the rest of time, I’ll be strong as a warrior.
