Pain Of A Mental Illness

Materials and everything that happens before getting to Cloud9

Depression can take over people lives
Makes you wanna go and hide
Dont wanna be bothered, seen, or heard
Dont wanna eat, sleep, or move
Stuck in one emotion
One position
Hurt by the thoughts that's in your head
Listening to them when you shouldn't be but its hard not to
The constant feeling of wanting to cry
Not knowing why
It's like this dark place
Everything feels numb in this space
You fight it everyday yet some days it takes a toll
Wanna be alone till you break free
Just wanna think to yourself
All the overthinking thoughts about you, the past, or something that happened
Sometimes it gets real bad
Cutting, suicide, pills, drinking
You determine which one is best
Because this feeling makes you a mess
