They don't make a sound
Creeping out from the darkness
To cause suffering
Scrutinizing fortitude
Never traveling alone

Your eyes, much like magic, put me under your spell
They see to my soul. They puncture my shell
Truth's all they know. Their never deceiving
They give me the answers that I'm often seeking
And whisper the words that I need to be well

Throughout my whole life I was taught not to feel
Discouraging put downs had first spun this wheel
Later the numbness extended to violence
Inequity towards me was stuffed until silenced
This armor had left me with no wounds to heal

This type of existence proved no way to live
My walls were torn down by my wife and my kids
Sensing such weakness and seeking to profit
She sunk the knife deep into me and she lost it
With shoves from my daughter to anguish I slid.

A child gets the access to do the most damage
Her taking advantage of weakness was savage
The lies and deceiving had gone on for years
Once I could see that it brought me to tears
This wound that she made will take so long to bandage

Sometimes I see a deep concern in you

Like you wonder if your ever gonna make it through

Events seem big, and at times they may weigh a lot

Often feels like too much but you know its not

So much in life is only temporary

What hurts us one day isn't always something we will carry

So Son if you can hold on through the darker times

Know they don't last. Your on the wake of what will be sublime

Sometimes its hard to see the love that's all around you

Reach out your hand and you will feel it grab and pull you through

See sometimes in life we need to have blind faith

Till desperation fades and shows we have a better fate

Always know I love you more than words could ever say

I see your struggle but just know I think your doing great

And you know we may not always see eye to eye

I'm not perfect but you know that I would never lie

So when that anger rises up inside you

Please believe me when I say that feeling isn't true

Its a response to how your seeing things at the time

Take a breath, step back you'll see that things are fine  

You know your Mom and I will always have your back

Through thick and thin were at your side when you feel attacked

So rest assured when there's something that's concerning you

You're not alone, were always there to help you make it through

No matter what gets thrown at you all throughout the day

Take rest in knowing you are ours and we are here to stay.

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

You left me again today
Drifted deep into darkness
To a realm absent of beauty or love
Where forces impel you to swallow lies

My voice, muffled by wretched thoughts, fails to find you
It has no authority where you reside
Powerless to unchain you, I can only wait
In another dimension I hold you
Patiently awaiting your return
Living with a loved one who suffers from depression.
