I'm Great, fine, spectacular. In a way
I relish every night, and I live every day.
I live, I laugh, I write, I sing,
I wonder what the new days will bring.

Then I get home, and I take off the mask.
The day, and almost impossible task,
Is finally over, and so I lie Down,
and wait patiently for the day that I die.

I cry, I scream, I bawl, and sleep,

even though I have promises to keep.

I wait, and wonder, and cry some more
,
And I ache and burn from my very core
.


Then, I'm not alone, and the mask reappears:

Out goes the grief, pain and all of the tears,

As I am a happy person, cheerful all the day.

A world full of rainbow, not one shade of grey.



Of course I'm not okay, I'm not fine,

No matter how much I seem to shine.

I don't even know why I feel this...

Why my existence is one long, endless abyss.



But it is, and will be, so I cling to life,

As one day I might slip, and end it with a knife.

But, I'm still here, no matter what my dreams might say

And I hope that one day I will actually be okay.

Lovely words and feelings so realistic it hurts to read. You've definitely nailed this feeling. I feel like this almost everyday, acting all cheery to avoid issues that come up from mention of my depression and then just letting myself fall when I get home. I'm hoping that you are recovered/recovering if you're posting this. Gives me hope

This is so true, and is unfortunately a cold reality for so many people.

A fantastic poem -- the lines flow very well, and you've created quite an image. Good work.
