No longer hidden

Like a chameleon the demons disappear into the darkest corner of my mind.
They remain hidden until my mental state starts to decline.

Like a wolf howling at the moon.
I felt an impending doom.
Self isolation had me locked in my room.

I used to block out the rest of the world because the fear of being betrayed was overwhelming.
I spent most of my time dwelling.
When I should have been expelling the demons in my head.

Replaying all the things every therapist has said.
Change your perspective and your life will change.
For the longest time I thought that was strange,
until one day I woke up and told myself today is going to be a good day.

A positive outlook actually changes lives.

Once I removed all of the knives,
the world seemed less scary.
My heart became less weary.

Depression may go unseen but it appears physically when my stomach is in knots.
Of course the fear of betrayal still lingers like the demons in my darkest thoughts.

Their voices have become so faint,
but I heard them recently.
Another failed attempt to break me.
