         So hard to pretend
         But so easy to lie.

         Not wanting to live
        But too scared to die.

         The feeling rises up
          But drags me down.

      It's less strain to smile
         But easier to frown.



       It's hard to ask for help
               AND YET
          Easy to accept it

    It's selfish to ask others to help
             BUT THEN AGAIN
It's selfish not to give them the chance to

       I feel I don't deserve love
               AND YET
         I yearn for it anyway

          I need a response
              BUT THEN
       I can't bear to read it

          You give me hope
              AND YET
       My cheeks burn in shame

    I have nothing to apologise for
                BUT...

All I can say is sorry...
              Because it's the only thing that even comes close to summing up what I feel:

               Gratitude,
                         Regret

               Affection,
                         Self-hate



                                    Pain...

                                                        ...and shame.
It's just...so awkward, and I'm too scared to say anything about it...

P. S I...know that it meant a lot to me, even if I don't say anything.

Wow. This poem blew me away. Nice job. :)

I have dysthymia, as well as overwhelming anxiety. This poem pretty much sums up how I feel on a day to day basis. But no matter how difficult it gets, no matter how many times you feel like giving up... get through it. I promise you, its worth it. There -is- a light at the end of the tunnel, you just cant see it -yet-.

Thank you for posting this up. Yes, the poem is saddening, But I am glad to know that I am not the only one going through the same thing.
