Poem:

Who knew id by engulfed by this sadness

Surrounding me with the thoughts of suicide

Each wave taking a piece of me I once knew

Taking me deeper into this darkness

I don’t want to be here

How’d I end up like this?

I never thought I’d be the girl who cuts herself

Or starves to be the “ideal” body image

I use to be happy and playful

What happened to that version of me?

Did she die trying to fight against this stranger taking over me?

Or did she leave like everyone else?

She left me here to fight against this war on my own

Oh do I miss her dearly

I used to be known as the energetic happy little girl

Now I’m just that EMO FREAK
