Sinking
deeper,
I cry inside,
I can't move,
The tarry, oil black
t         h        o        u         g         h        t       s,
Fill me,
Consume my every motion
breath,
crevice,
No light
No air
Iv'e        r    u   n
out of time,
Ran out of hope,

Then I drown
Swallowed by my depression,
Swallowed by the ocean
Swallowed by my fears.
The title of a song by social repose, also my inspiration. This is about depression and suicide, the dark oil/water in depression, and symbolizes the fear of death, but also the hopelessness one feels while being depressed.
