This Place Is Eating Me Alive

by James Winter

How do you cope when you’re this low? My mental state left me incapacitated, broken and torn apart within. There was no place or person for me to turn to. Loneliness has become a part of my every day life, and depression is as normal to me as happiness is to someone else. Trying to come to terms with how my mind works is an uphill struggle which twists and turns with my emotions and dark thoughts. Constantly battling against this sickness, there must be a shred of hope in sight in which light will prevail and darkness will be whisked away with the wind. The untold story stories of what have been were the release I needed to shake the shackles of the dark beast and welcome in the light. You are never alone.
