I am feeling so detached

As I stare blankly at the wall

I have the distinct impression

That I don’t matter much at all

I awake when my eyes open

Because I don’t really care

I’m well acquainted with depression

And it’s not going anywhere

I spend my days forsaken

It doesn’t matter what I do

No one ever stops to visit

I can understand

Who would want to

I’ve grown so weary of the world

It seems it’s growing tired of me

The vibrancy that I once knew

Has disappeared and possibly

It is hiding with the sun

Behind the clouds of grey

I used to wish for rainbows

Even dreams have slipped away

I dare not plan the future

It’s too vague for me to hope

I take things as they come

And try so hard to cope

Within a world so foreign

That I somehow seem to know

I’m trapped by the confusion

Of not knowing where to go
