Can you hear me screaming your name?

I sit and wait for you to be there

Sometimes I wonder if you even care 

All you do is sit there and pretend 

That I'm not there and the depression isn't real


You lie to yourself 

You lie to me 


As I sit in the corner and feel the tears come down

It's too hard to swallow

Too hard to breathe 


The mask is coming undone 

Revealing the pain 

Revealing the sorrow 


I sit and yell and feel so alone 

You yell and scream 

I feel like a pathetic waste 

Lost in a sea of lies 


I feel like this depression will never die 

Can somebody help?


Will anybody help me escape 
I'm begging now 

Just for an out


I scream your name

But your not there

Finally I realize you don't care

    Depression is so lonely and so very solo. I just don't think people can truly relate to someone's depression till it actually happens to them.
