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.
