My Friends

Date Written: October 12, 2017

I have two friends

I can't seem to defriend them

because they have seemed to mend themselves

deep under my skin,

and not only that

but they have also

entwined themselves into my brain


One's name is Depression

He kind of has this obsession

To kill me slowly with his oppression

and when I try to get rid of him

He shows his aggression

And makes me feel like I'm right back where I started..

His possession



His buddy, Anxiety likes to tag along

She likes to make me feel like everything I do is wrong

or that I don't belong

with my group of friends

or even in my own family

She also likes to pick fun at me all day long

about how I dress

How I'm a terrible mess

How I can't seem to impress

because I can't express myself

So at that point I tend to egress

because my mind can't seem to process it

all at once


These two work together

my mind turns to cold weather

because I don't want to hurt

but even when I exert to get them out

They always seem to be there

and I have a feeling they always will be
