Twisted Ways

Depression is oppression.
It’s a deadly hidden message
Defined by self-hate.
It seals its prisoner’s fate.
It holds you captive and throws out the key.
It stabs and jabs just to see you bleed,
Inflicting wounds that scar for life.
Destruction is its mother
 and death its wife.

You can cry but it will always
ignore your screams.
It terrorizes your soul
and haunts your dreams.
It sends you false hope
 through a bottle or pill.
It destroys your goals and inflicts its will.
You can’t run, nor can you hide.
By its rules you will abide
Until it celebrates that you have died.
Open your eyes
Or you will be its prey.
It will blur your vision
in the most twisted way.
It will seek your destruction and call for your head.
You will lie and wait
but never rest in your bed.
