Depression

A swivet is a riptide.

Panic consumes you.

How do you stop from drowning?

Hopelessness smothers

You need to reach out

But exhaustion weighs you down.

It’s Purgatory

Your soul is crushed, confined.

You can’t escape.

Life’s despondency.

You don’t want to die

But you can’t go on living.
