If you know then you will know.
You just can’t imagine what is going on inside another.
One day seems grand and full of promise
and the next, without warning,
like the sirens announcing a tornado,
it is ripped from you-
You just never know.
It seems all shiny and new
and glowing on the outside.
It is not screaming for assistance
and announcing its presence.
Yet, it is there and wants to be heard.
It makes you feel betrayed
It makes you wonder about everything you ever saw
It makes you think your eyes are deceivers
and your heart is nothing more
than an evil force designed to make you the demon.
And you are the demon.
From the inside out.
and going in circles like the steeds from your childhood-
dancing up and down to creepy music
and evoking fear.
It makes you feel
Left to fend for yourself
no matter how many people swear they are here to help,
Because you don’t trust them
and because, truthfully,
You are all alone in this
because the demons and evil-doers are not material monsters
you can battle face to face with physical force.
Depression is a bitch
and she is the queen of all demons
and only you can conquer her.
