Andy Hunter

Depression

My head’s screwed up – can’t think can’t see
Don’t understand what’s happening to me
No heat, no light, no touch, no sound
Emptiness is all I’ve found

Inside I feel just doubts and pain
No energy to make things change
My hope is gone, my soul is lost
I don’t belong – can’t count the cost

I kissed goodbye to yesterday
Felt like a fool to walk away
Now just sitting in my home made cell
With nobody to share my hell

So I hide the truth behind a mask
Time stands still- think of what’s past
With nothing to share and no more to lose
Nothing to give and nothing to prove

    Pretty bad - yes?
    But if you can write about it in such a coherent form, then you have cracked it or are well on the way.
    Liked it very much for its truth.

    Your words put onto paper will always help you ease the way forward to a better life.
