I have a sadness
that follows me
my soul screams out
it cries “relief!”
But my sadness
never leaves
I can pretend
for just a while
that I am free
and I can smile
But my sadness
is always there
My companion,
My despair.

I have struggled with depression in the past, (fortunately not anymore) and this is how I would describe the heaviness that hangs over you. If you or anyone you know are struggling with similar feelings, please know that there is hope. Life is worth living. You can be happy. You don't need to do it alone, either. You ARE NOT ALONE. <3

a tender caress of description; beauty thrives in darkness, pushing through to accept light.
