I woke up this morning In bed next to Depression Although, I don't remember going to sleep next to him I think I would've remembered that I know I would've remembered that
Because, Depression and I Haven't seen each other In a very long time We actually separated… In fact, I dumped him The instant Joy returned to me
But I guess I should've know better Than to get clingy with Joy Because last night She left Again. So suddenly So abruptly So randomly I thought we were happy together But changing circumstances Sent her running for the hills
Depression must have heard that she ran And seized the opportunity to get to me Yet, until today I thought I'd never see him again I hoped Because I didn't want him here Not anymore
So I told him to leave Over and over But stubborn as ever He refused Over and over Which escalated into a shouting match One minute, I was yelling But the next… I'm on the ground I mean I've seen Depression hit Joy before But he's never hit me … Until today
I don't remember much But I'm still bruised and bloodied And when the tears came down my cheeks He sighed And sat down next to me To embrace me
I wanted to push him away But… I guess I just didn't have the energy And even as I cried out miserably His hold Seemed to comfort me Well… not “comfort” maybe But I became comfortable In his arms I am comfortable In his arms
And despite How badly he hurt me I don't mind the fact that he came back Because Until today I had forgotten what he meant to me I had forgotten How much Depression and I get along.
