#Because I love You, I can love myself.

Depression is my painful addiction that doesn't quit after twelve steps.

Redefining the definition of trapped, the terror like an anchor tied to my body.

Lost at sea in a wave of emotions, wishing to be swallowed.


Because I love you I am not afraid to face my next tomorrow.

Together we will stand to fend off our demons, as I fear I have succumb to mine.


Being sober now has granted me life.

Because I love you, I have the power to love myself

I have the power to forgive myself.
