Depression is… #poetry #poem


Some days depression is the rain

that patters on my bedroom window.

It keeps tapping and tapping

to remind me of its presence.


Some days depression is nightfall

with its lack of light and heavy eyelids.

It urges me to sip a drink

to forget it ever existed.


Some days depression is a ponytail

and pajamas and slippers.

It is resisting a new day

when yesterday isn’t over yet.


Depression is laziness and sleep.

It is frustration and anger.

It is the tears in my eyes

that i don’t let fall.


At the mere scent of its presence,

i take the antidote

tiny and round

and hope this time

it works.
