The Truth

Sorry it’s been so long

since I visited your grave

depression got a hold

and turned me into its slave.

I locked myself away

from prying eyes

afraid that they

wouldn’t believe my lies,

that I was okay

and just a bit under the weather,

a few days in bed

and I would be much better.

The truth, though,

is a lot harder to face

not knowing if I belong

in this God forsaken place.
