You don't understand
Depression is my friend and enemy
That lives in my head and vacations
on my shoulders.
I wish I could get better
but depression eats your optimisim
And I can't simply post an evicted notice
on my forehead
And help it carry it's bag to the rental van.
I hope someday you understand
That your life jacket of positivity
only lifts me to breathe
But it doesn't drag me out of the water
I'm drowning in.
