Dark Places

I travel to these dark places in my mind
In there I feel that I am left behind
I travel to these places all of the time
I feel like I am in a box like a mime
In it there is an invisible wall
That soars so high and tall
I feel there is a monster at my back
It is so hard when my emotions are all out of whack
I am trying so hard to end this unyielding session
I know that this is a bout of severe depression

Very poignant it says a lot and has a good choice of words for someone that doesn't write poems you did quite well.

I agree with hardedward6969...This is really fine & conveys your message nicely. Depression is a terrible thing & I firmly believe everyone has bouts of it...I certainly did. Recognizing it is the first step in defeating & overcoming it.

You are so right about defeating it.
