I’m too sad to sleep
too sad to live

it’s not that I
desire death it’s just

I cannot function  
even to eat or sleep

because of the vast
and heavy sorrow

in my heart
and chest

It’s built up
and swollen

to take up
all the room

inside of my brain
I’m afraid

they say the more
times depression stays

the more pathways
your brain makes

they say eventually
it erases old pathways

you actually forget
how to be happy

and all your brain
remembers is sad

it’s been coming back
since i was 15

I think it’s made too many pathways now

I’m trying so hard
doing all I can but

I’m just



i guess.
I took 2 sleeping pills but I still can’t sleep
