Poetry: Overstayed My Welcome

I have a great amount of respect
But apparently it doesn’t show
I know we’re all going through things
But how was I supposed to know
That depression isn’t welcome
You’d rather wish it away
But that’s simply not how it works
And I don’t want to wait and stay
For you to feel like I’m not thankful
Like I don’t value your sacrifice
Was never my intention
And I guess I’m paying the price

I don’t want to make up excuses
But withdrawal has been no joke
It’s taking a huge amount of courage
And I didn’t want to provoke
Any negative feelings
That might have affected you
Throughout my process of healing
While I’m feeling blue

You are not the first one
And most likely not the last
Who tells me how hard it is
To live with me and my demons from the past

I’m thankful for your energy
Patience and time
I’m thankful for your support
For always helping me climb
You opened your house
Heart and soul
Allowed me to figure it all out
But now it’s taken its toll
I’m realizing now
It’s time for me to go
I’ve overstayed my welcome
But I want you to know

I’m thankful to the moon and back
For everything you’ve done
I love you with all my heart
You are a very special someone

  1. You are doing right
    cause you’re grateful
    love & understanding
    for you will be plentiful
    as long as you need it
    don’t be sorry & pitiful
    that love and patience
    for mental illnesses
    it’s a sword very fateful.

    1. I’m glad I was able to word it the way I did. I guess it’s always nice to know you’re not alone, even though I feel sorry you’re going through something similar. Hang in there, I hope you’re doing okay. ♡
