Depress Me Please

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.



Depress me please

Tell me something bad

Depress me please

Tell me how I look stupid and fat

Come on, don’t hold back

Let it rip,

Go ahead, tell me I am lower than shit

Don’t stop now,

I see you are just warming up

Depress me and tell me how ugly I look

I come from a long line of thieves and crooks

Depress me more, my father was a Nazi

And I was nothing more than a rape baby

Depress me please, the girl I loved so long is going away

I would if I could point a gun to my head and blow my unhappiness away

I cut my wrist daily, but somehow the devil keeps me awake

For me to suffer the cut once more, while he gargles the pain

Scars around my neck with ropes of melanin flesh

Not even hanging can relieve this wretch

Depression, Depression, come to me let me act out my rage

To end my life I am not afraid

Go ahead, depress me, and call me names

For the passion for suicide fuels these flames.

Bills, hate, race, crime.

I live a life of goo and slime

Come now depression, help me with this bottle of pills

Plus this glass of alcohol will give my heart beat the chills

Depress me, Depress me fast, lights are dimming, now even slower

But soon this depression will be completely over.

Hey, Clive, they need to change your meds because these clearly aren’t working. Good read, seriously.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Really well done. You left me wondering just how the depression would be completely over.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on March 14, 2018:

Well that was a hell of a wake up call!

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on March 14, 2018:

Of course, being a mental health therapist, I love the last line: HOPE. Thanks for graphically (as always) putting to words what many feel everyday.
