It's a sea,
Deep and dark.
You have fallen in to it,
You struggle to reach the shore.
But fast flowing waves have swayed you far.
You make feeble attempts to draw someone's attention.
You are all alone in the midst of darkness.
And the sea is sucking you deep in.
You feel weight upon yourself,
You are drowning.
You feel water moving in your lungs through nostrils.
Your insides are burning
You close your eyes.
It's all fading.
You can sense your plight is soon to end
You are falling in the lap of a beautiful calm sleep.
You are woken back to life from the slumber,
Only to realize it's just a dream that has ended but the nightmare continues.
You will again fall into darkness.
You, again, will be all alone.
Again, your insides will burn.
And you agin will rise to survive this all over again.
This is what depression is like.
