The “D” Word by Adilene Velazquez-Mancilla

The D Word (AW)

Blood running as fast as it can to my head

Head throbbing, heavy breathing, and blurry vision

Dazed and confused, not knowing where to go

The lonely teardrop rolling down the left side of my face

The darkness comes storming through, kidnapping any happiness within my soul

Body shivers, goosebumps crawl though my skin, in need of a warm affectionate hug

Not a soul in sight, nobody can help me escape the darkness no matter how fast I run

The darkness has eaten me alive before

Every time seems harder and harder to escape its strong grip

Unless you have been consumed by the darkness, will you ever understand my suffering

The darkness is one of the greatest villains in the world, his name is depression
