A trigger warning to those reading.
This poem is about how I think depression feels like, inspired by the song "Drown" by Tyler Joseph - https://www.youtube.com/w...

drown

Sitting out on the dock of my psyche facing seemingly calm waters

Sitting out on the dock of my psyche facing seemingly calm waters at first, the water only licked my toes

Sitting out on the dock of my psyche facing seemingly calm waters at first, the water only licked my toes then it swallowed me whole

Sitting out on the dock of my psyche facing seemingly calm waters at first, the water only licked my toes then it swallowed me whole below the surface of ravaging thoughts

The sky and ocean are blending together

The sky and ocean are blending together endless black to shroud a mind

The sky and ocean are blending together endless black to shroud a mind stripped of the light it once was a home to

The sky and ocean are blending together endless black to shroud a mind stripped of the light it once was a home to yes, it was blue before, but even I don't know what happened

I reach out from below the surface

I reach out from below the surface a futile thought of a hand holding on to mine

I reach out from below the surface a futile thought of a hand holding on to mine who had traveled through my gray clouds

I reach out from below the surface a futile thought of a hand holding on to mine who had traveled through my gray clouds only to find me already giving up

I never believed my blood came from a god above

I never believed my blood came from a god above but even if I plead now

I never believed my blood came from a god above but even if I plead now a faith I disregarded can side-eye me

I never believed my blood came from a god above but even if I plead now a faith I disregarded can side-eye me as I commit blasphemy

Failed, failed to stay happy

Failed, failed to stay happy the all-consuming dark thoughts building pressure

Failed, failed to stay happy the all-consuming dark thoughts building pressure a struggle to keep breathing

Failed, failed to stay happy the all-consuming dark thoughts building pressure a struggle to keep breathing it's a painfully slow start to a far end

I'm still gulping air from small bubbles

I'm still gulping air from small bubbles a last lifeline, I don't know why I'm still bothering

I'm still gulping air from small bubbles a last lifeline, I don't know why I'm still bothering there's too much to handle inside me

I'm still gulping air from small bubbles a last lifeline, I don't know why I'm still bothering there's too much to handle inside me but I still keep it all, trapping myself in a corner

My dark thoughts are the same as the ocean

My dark thoughts are the same as the ocean it'll win, it'll win, I can't see anything anymore

the sky's too late to salvage what's left

I can’t afford to think in the violent silence

so let me drown
