Poetry || Depression



I see her trying to creep in

But I’m powerless against her

Or maybe I’m too powerful

But can’t recognise my own strengths


Read this Depression Poem by Debbie Leads here


She terrorises me with her gifts

She tempts me with easy way outs

I ache after her visits

I know she’s bad for me

But I feel so lonely without her


Related Hard limit


My soul is darkened at her touch

Hate filled rage engulfs me at her whisper

I burn anyone who dares to come close

I burn myself the most

They say there is hope for me

She convinces me they are lying

Everyone is the same, they don’t know you like I know you, she whispers

“Depression exist without you knowing it, even denying it. It is not an illusion. You don’t even know you’re in it. It takes awhile before you realize it.”

Oblivion beckons at me

Her voice so tempting

Draws me in like an elixir

But a part of me doesn’t want to heed her call


I’m in need of a saviour

Or am I kryptonic that you can’t save me

Do I hide it so well

That you can’t see it?


Time has come for me to fade away

That part of me can no longer fight on

She poisoned me

And no one cared enough to save me

I’m eternally condemned now to an abyss of pain

All because I had depression’s menu

Written by Henry Obiefuna

“I wanted to talk about it. Damn it. I wanted to scream. I wanted to yell. I wanted to shout about it. But all I could was whisper “I’m fine.”
