Overpowering emotions, feelings...anger, hurt, joy, despair, love...
Back and forth, in opposite directions, never resting. 
Then nothing...  only numbness... 
Am I still alive, still breathing?
Am I capable of feeling...anything?
I want to feel pain, bleed and be human.

I don’t want to be afraid or run away.
Feeling a heart beat inside my chest,
But feelings are absent. You did that!
I am broken, alone, left with only memories.
But the memories serve me well.

They remind me that you did this!
You took my smile, my reason, my hope.
You drained the soul that once was me.
But you stay my best friend,
Unwavering, always in attendance 
Keeping me frozen at night,

Being my company in the dark,
We like the dark, where nothing happens
Thanks to you, I believe in nothing!
You are my friend, my demise and
I am your hostage...

Depression, please leave me be
Allow me to breath, laugh, feel
Give me back my soul!
