The Shadow, Anon


The shadow follows me everywhere in the form of a black cat.

Lonely and desperate.

Longing for attention.

Sad and miserable.

Soulless.

Empty.

Despair.

Black is all I see.

Darkness is all I know.

Where do I go?

Where oh where is my peace?

Where is my joy?

Hopeless.

Where can I turn for peace?

Every day, I fight for survival.

Survive.

Day by day.

Just one more day.

One day more.

Gnashing, wailing

Screaming, shouting

That only I can hear.


Nobody else hears.

What they hear is silence.

I am

Trapped.

Silenced.

Unable to speak.

Chained.

Misunderstood.

Depressed.

They diagnose me with….

….Depression.
