Dissonant Demons

Dissonant Demons by Valerie Parente

My eyes want to cry
but I’m not sad in my mind.
My body wants to be burned
but my heart is already warm.
I’m trying to think of ways
to hurt myself without causing pain.
These demons, they try to stay relevant,
but my glorious God is not hellbent.

    Drowning in depression, it’s easy to feel lost. I have experienced it too. It’s a tormenting feeling when your demons slither underneath your skin and the world is oblivious to your torture. Thanks for sharing such an emotional post, I know how tough it is to talk about depression. According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them. 😊
