Depression is a funny thing

Depression is a funny thing.

I could be 

held tight,

in the strong arms 

of my love, and still

cry 

myself to sleep.

I could be 

with a circle of friends

so tight-knit, yet

still feel alone,

every familiar face 

seemingly a stranger.

Even my own. 

I could be

in a new place,

free to explore,

but still feel locked

in a room, trapped

inside my own mind. 

Depression is a funny thing.

The thing is, it’s not funny at all.
