i've got my depression under control.


Here I sit

Without me

Without you

I feel like my throat is closing in

Im not sure what this feeling is


Doom comes over me without warning

I feel like I need to scream but can't

I feel like I need to cry but can't

I feel like I could die

I could die

I could lie here

I could just lie here

I can breathe

I can see again

I can speak

Nothing happened

I'm just having a bad day

Yeah school just stresses me out

Nothing to worry about counselor

I've got my depression under control

I don’t need a soul.
