Depression and Addiction

No one will ever know 
the pain that lies 
within your heart, 
your mind,  
your soul.  

No one will ever see 
the poison that flows 
through your veins,  
in your blood, 
in your mind.  

No one will ever hear 
you cry out in fear 
that tomorrow 
is a day 
that may never come.  

No one will ever understand 
that this is not made up 
nor is it wanted 
but cannot 
be dispelled.
