Living With Depression Is Like…

Living with depression

is like watching people around you

breathing but instead

your blue lips inhale

words of self-hatred

and you know you should

be able to fill your

lungs

with fresh oxygen

like everyone else

but you can’t

and the worst part is

people mistake your chest

frantically rising up and down

as breathing

when really you’re suffocating.
