Dear depression, I was 11 when you forced yourself on me. You never introduced yourself or even asked to be friends, you just took over my life. My happy days were gone, you kept following me around making me feel unwanted. I did not want you here. You grew as I grew, creeping into the quiet moments when I thought I was alone. You made me feel like I was nothing. I woke up looking forward to sleeping again - it was my escape. Yet you made my escape so difficult to reach. I used to be so happy when the sun came out shining on my skin as I ran through the yard and laughed, with no care in the world. But that laughter turned into tears, the sun into darkness. My heart and soul cries for help as I try to fight you. You changed me - You keep me in my thoughts. I'm stuck in a dark empty place that was once my self, but now it's gone. You left me far beneath my tears. You have taken my life away. Why can't you just be gone already!!! I do not want you here, I never did! You have taken so much, what else do you want from me?!
I don't want you as a friend anymore. I can't take the constant fighting for my life. You ruined me. You ruined my mind, heart, body, and soul. You come back every time but you never leave. When will you leave me? I write sobbing knowing how much you have damaged me. I want you to leave and never come back.
There's not enough room for both of us. So may the best one win.
