Depression Brings A Friend


Depression brings a friend today

Anxiety appears—

She manacles my cortex

Chains of dreaded doubt

Flogging me with worry


No way out

Her cuts are pure precision

Tormenting my each thought

She walks away

Depression stays—

He says he’ll help me out.

Dragged into the void again where I was before

I plead and beg for mercy--

He laughs and says no more.

Taken to a mirror

I see my former self

He tortures me relentlessly until I’m someone else.

Anxiety joins in again

I’m chained upon the floor

They say that they are waiting--

A knock upon the door

I lie here in agony for my end is near

I look into his steely eyes—

His friends all call him Fear.
