No escape

My dreams are dark,
My moods are depressing.
I feel so distressed amidst all of this,
I feel haunted when I lay to bed,
I feel disturbed when I'm wide awake,
No peace for me on both ends,
Exactly why do I ever have to continue living.
Sleeping, and waking up panicking.
Awake, and feeling tears running down my face.
The pains I feel are what I want to end,
The pains are why I take the pills,
If they continue even when I'm asleep,
Is that my cue that only death can take my pain away.
