I’m sorry,
But I can’t
Get out of bed today.
My bones are far too heavy to move,
And I know I will end up asleep on the couch anyway.

I’m sorry,
But I don’t
Want to do the dishes today.
I promise I will get to them next week
After I figure out where all this sadness comes from.

I’m sorry,
But I shouldn't
Talk to anyone today.
I may end up saying something I don’t mean
Because most people don’t take the time to understand.

I’m sorry,
But I don’t know
What is wrong with me today.
I can’t help but to feel this way, and
I can’t help but wonder if this sadness will ever go away.
Just something I wrote in a few quick minutes.
Excuses, excuses, excuses.

A great exploration into daily life for someone who suffers with depression. It flows beautifully and it's so simple but accurate. Love it <3

Wow. I really like this. I see tons of writing about the miserable depths of depression, but I love how you talk here about the basic things that are so difficult to do when you're depressed and the shame that comes from that. I have tons of days like this and it's comforting to see them described. You're not alone.:heart:

This is a beautiful poem however do you mean 'sadness' in the second stanza? It is a lovely poem :)
