Depression. Remember.

Depression. Remember.
I remember how it felt
Depression flowing in my veins
The anti-life force that kept
Living just out of reach
I hid away from the sun
My skin burned on contact
Curled up in my bed
Was the only place
Where I could feel safe

I remember the isolation
Not having the energy
To reach out to new faces
Or to even keep the familiar
The anxiety of being alone

I wish I could remember
The moment it started
When the weight started to feel lighter
Just a tiny bit
When the sun didn’t hurt too much
The time when I could finally breathe
