Depression is a Richard by Heather D. Pease
Pantoum poem

I’ve got myself tormented, sitting in silence
fighting reoccurring trauma, a burden for too many years
It collects the tears, takes all the laughter, for itself
Living in its desolation I hide it from public view
fighting reoccurring trauma, a burden for too many years
Your depression is back
Living in its desolation I hide it from public view
I never asked for this cancerous blackness
Your depression is back
each trigger a battle again and again
I never asked for this cancerous blackness
I won’t let it beat me, take everything I am
each trigger a battle again and again
Depression a disease I can’t cure
I won’t let it beat me, take everything I am
I never asked for this triggered beast
Depression a disease I can’t cure
It collects the tears, takes all the laughter, for itself
I never asked for this triggered beast
I’ve got myself tormented sitting in silence
