Dragging along is a simple thing
                                                                here there is no pleasure;
                                                                                 no pain.

Walking numb without a course
                                                                looking forward sometimes;
                                                                          always looking back.

Wanting what we cannot have
                                                                wishing for the "would have"s
                                                                                    "could have"s
                                                                                    "what if"s

A vain attempt to find some pleasure
                                                                in this endless hopelessness

Maybe some day there will be peace
                                                                within the soul that cannot hear

Alas, for today our heads hang low
                                                               days filled with sorrow
trying to express how i feel. i know i should be doing homework, but i cant concentrate.... my life has me so confused, and my mind is going in circles. I just dont know what to do, and every day im on a rollercoaster of emotions. I feel like ill never make it off this crazy ride... :(

I have had depression. I know these sound like empty words, but you are not alone. There are two ways to escape. One is fighting and becoming stronger than everyone around you who has not felt your pain. The other is giving up. It is the choice between what is right and what is easy. You are strong.

Ah, the sleeping soul. I hate when that happens... I am filled with both despair and passion when that happens. I feel passion to wake up that soul, and help it radiate the unending warmth and light that it holds within itself. The human spirit is so strong, enduring through so much and continuing to rise above each wave that crashes into it.

As for this poem, if I leave it with just words, I like it. It is simple, yet also elegant. However, when I connect it to its meaning, it pierces my heart. I cannot stand to see others pulled into the disillusioning darkness, although once you do get out, you will see clearer than before (it is only natural). This is horrible, but beautifully worded at the same time.

It is never a good way to feel. And, from my experience, I'd say you're at least almost spot on. Maybe even right on for you. I like it. It's simple and has definitive purpose.
