In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness month, I was inspired to write this poem as my first Daily Prompt post.
utterly numb and drained,
plaguing my being,
I descend into chaotic melancholy
that is depression
The two devils sitting on my shoulder–
one screaming don’t care,
the other forcing worries into my ears
as fast as I can manage to breathe
during a panic attack.
Transparent and opaque,
complete opposite disorders
that wind so tightly together
like the threads of my jeans.
