about depression


by lexi


the educational world awaits, spilling knowledge into my throat

i am too busy choking to indulge in something as trivial

as my own hobbies and pursuits

my throat is sunken with fluids

that burn my tongue and gums numb

and if i speak my lungs collapse and crash onto each other

like ticking time bombs

my brain has access to my ankles and legs

to describe them as ankle weights is not accurate they are not weighted, they are weak

they are immobile

and, despite my lack of interest in my health

i cannot help but notice i continue to gain rather than lose pounds

a side defect a side effect

is ruining the physical portion of me

that i have left.


to be idle is to die

This is insanely heart felt and I can relate perfectly, just recently I experienced another moment of pain and suffering and reading this made me aware I'm not the only one in pain. This is extremely well written, great job😁

This was a fascinating read. I loved your illusory verses. You wrote this with a steady engaging meter. Great work!!
