Hotlines are at the end of the post along with some hugs, take care. This is bad poetry attempt #3 trying to capture what it feels like to have Depression, where you see everyone else is flying and telling you to fly, but you look at yourself only to realize you don’t have any wings. Hope it isn’t too shit xD
They say you’re healing
But you’re just getting hurt.
They say you’re learning, but
You’re just getting burnt.
They say you’re only human and it’s okay
But they’ve got wings, you don’t.
They say “you could fly if you want to”
& you keep trying
but you don’t want to.
Living feels more like a lie when you’re me
They say to stop yourself from drowning
when you just can’t breathe.
They tell you you’re alive when you’re choking
’cause they just can’t see..
They don’t even have to try.
They’re not like me, darling they can fly.
Having faith, to me, is laced with fear
And fantasies are full of fleeting dreams
and nothing’s as it seems
they tell me I’m crazy;
They can fly, and they can’t understand me.
