Permanent Sadness

I see it
In the corner of my eye
A gentle grey
Inviting

I decline
Tearing my gaze away
Choosing to see
Light

And it works
For a moment or more
Daisies blooming
For me

Seconds pass
Or hours, I cannot tell
I feel it again
Heavy

The blanket
That's placed on me
Wrapped around
Stifling

Reminding me
That this is permanent
The daisies and joy
All lies

Sadness
That's what it is
Waiting to be seen
Noticed

Being alone does not make me sad
It reminds me that I am

This is amazing.
I think it really shows depression.
