Darkness is the definition of absence

Can’t see, can’t feel, can’t love

Feeling like you’re the only one

Darkness would surround you

Belief turning into disbelief bn

Life is not option anymore for you

Nobody to hold you back from the pain

Everything you loved, now hatred to you

Thinking that there’s no way back

Crying yourself to sleep every night thinking

“Will my hope ever come back to me?”

Imagining the good old days with friends and family

Now disappearing with the pilm of light

Holding you back from insanity

Suicide is the hidden death

You look at your whole family at the dinner table

Memories come back as fast as lightning

The light shows so bright that you fall back into your bed

The thoughts of life fill your body of pleasurement

Depression is internal, and so is your life

So be with your family, put down that knife
