Sadness gripped me.

Sadness gripped me

Holding back that hidden tear

In a world so filled with fear

Lonely in a crowded space

Searching for a warm embrace.

Filled with others expectations

Tangled response, complications

Reaching for that perfect form

Sinking drowning mental storm.

Sleepless nights twisting turning

Candles now at both ends burning

Tension born from daily trauma

Depression writes a scary drama.
