What is depression to me?

Letting the dishes sit for days.

Craving to be alone more and more.

Hating myself.

Forgetting the stove is on.

A loss of energy.

A heaviness that won't shake.

A disastifaction that won't go away.

Even during the good times. Which are many.

Even when everything is good.
