Depression and the Demon

Depression

The Demon that's inside of me consumes me from within,
yet, no one will ever see a single sight of him.
I've tried to drown him with alcohol, yet he still won't die,
and all the pain he causes me all I can do is cry.
I know I cannot take my life and set this demon free,
for the world is safe from him as long as he's in me.
But, one day I will die and my Demon will then roam,
I pray to you my friends you won't become his home.
How I became possessed is still quite a mystery,
could it have been my life that lured this demon into me?
Right now he's powerless and all the pain is mine,
behind sad eyes my heart screams out, and my life's so far from fine.
I've lost many things because of this burden that I bear,
yet, I'm not alone because my Demon has brothers everywhere.
