You’ve been there for years,
Sometimes you leave me,
But you always come back,
You change and shapeshift,
But you’re my lifelong friend.
You never truly go away,
I doubt you ever truly will,
It’s not like I asked for you,
But I doubt you wanted me,
You’re still my lifelong friend.
Let me go, I really wish you would,
But you hold on to me with claws,
The moment I’m free,
The moment I break away, you’re back,
You’re my only lifelong friend.
Depression: you hold my life in your hands,
Depression: you are my keeper,
Depression: you control everything I say and do,
Depression: you hate me yet won’t leave,
Depression: you are my lifelong friend.
