The Story of Us

This is the story of us. You've always been there, but I never really wanted to notice you. You kept your distance at times, but always knew how to make your presence known. You saw me at worst, but also saw me at my best. You were best at being there when I lost someone, but especially when I lost myself. You were there when I couldn't eat, struggling to get up from bed. You were there when it rained, and all I wanted to do was listen to sad music. I wanted to sulk and hear the rain as it hit my window. You were the loudest roar during my quietest moments. And now, I've learned to live with you - my depression. I've learned how to cope healthily. I learned a lot about myself during this journey, but the best thing I've learned is that I will never give up on myself.
