Here we go again.

Another scratch,
Another panic attack,
Just when I thought I was done.
Well, ain’t it fun,
To be a nervous wreck?

Only I’m a big kid now.
Too old
To be the resident
Drama queen.
Nobody cares
When you’re not beautiful.

God, I sound emo.
And so maybe I am
(by definition, at least)
But I feel like a sham –
What am I to you?

Would you care
If I lived out my dark little fantasies?
Got swallowed by the dark seas,
Of my soul?

Would you care
If I went back to the blade
That you forbade
Me to seek solace in?

If you knew what went on in my head,
A million different ways
To make me dead,
Would you tell me to just
‘Not feel down’ anymore?

If I could stop feeling this way,
Believe me,
I would.
Stop thinking like this?
If only
I could.
Wow, haven't written something this depressing in ages.

Side note: By writing this, I am not trying to glorify or romanticise things like self-harm, depression, anxiety, etc. As someone who has been through all of the above, I know that it is not something to be romanticised and if you feel like the above poem, feel free to note me if you want a chat or whatever. I wrote this just because I felt like I had to get it out. 

Another side note: You are beautiful and don't let anyone tell you any different. :)

It takes a lot of strength to write and post something like this for everyone to see, and I am truly taken aback at the magnitude of this poem.  

I completely relate to this at the moment, and I find myself telling certain people this all the time.  People can say anything they want, but there will always be a seed of doubt in everyone's mind. 

I'm just in awe at this poem and how your poetry always has the ability to render me speechless.  I also wholeheartedly agree with the side note.  

:') beautiful poem, and don't stop fighting!  I'm sure you're told this all the time, but one who gives so many people faith deserves to be reminded of why they're fighting. :love: :hug:

Whoa. That took the air out of my lungs. It feels like you wrote this for me. Like we sat in a room face to face talking and after hearing my life story, you wrote this. This is very beautiful.

I liked it, but for some reason I can imagine this as a screamo song. No idea why. O.o
