When Depression falls in love with Anxiety

Our issues mesh together so easily…
Creates this sense of passion;
But brings this monstrous catastrophe…
Filled with emotional aggression…
Still… I just can’t let it be.
Can’t let it go,
Without giving the fight that’s left in me.
I come with baggage.
I know we all do…
But my shit is hard to manage.
It manifests into this monster that it’s hard to undo,
But I’m trying to get through to you.
You have baggage.
Your head is so filled with thoughts…
It’s hard for you to even manage,
But I feel we can push through.
If we work on ourselves for ourselves,
We can make it through.
Let’s not let intentions just remain as thoughts of the past…
Let’s start over, build slowly…
I know in my heart we can make this last.
