The supermassive depression hole

A guest resource written by Varsha Bhat
This piece is for the days when you feel small and alone and depression never leaves your side but everyone around says “It’ll be okay.” But you just want someone to understand how you feel without force feeding you their seemingly fake positivity (even though it may not be fake – they just don’t get it)

Maybe I’ll just disappear

Over the years, months and moments

Over bridges & passages and underneath them

With excuses of adapting and falling into the flow of change

For the reward of flexible limbs, thoughts and heart

The steps became smaller, shorter, sharper
