Depression is sadness under pressure

You wake up and don't want to get up

Getting up requires energy and effort

Depression looks like a foggy window pane

When you step out of the shower and look at the window

Thanking god there is no visible reflection

It smells as salty as tears

Like an ocean

But the ocean is flowing from your eyes

It tastes like not eating for days

You even forget that breakfast is so important

It sounds like the cries and screams of people engulfed in this darkness

Depression feels as dark and shallow as a river during a thunderstorm

The brown colored water that flows really fast

Like your thoughts going back and forth

In one ear and out the other

Depression doesn’t live in all of us

But depression lives in me
