The girl inside my head

If someone were to ask me

I would say that I was fine,

But there lives a girl inside my head

who’s voice sounds just like mine.

 

She’ll tell me all these hurtful things

and I can’t figure out why,

But she’ll tell me that I’m worthless

and she likes it when I cry.

 

Sometimes when I wake up

I don’t want to leave my bed,

Because she takes up all my thoughts

And she’s screaming in my head.

 

And I’ve tried to be perfect

But she doesn’t go away,

I think no matter what I do

She’s always gonna stay.

 

On my darkened days I wonder

If other people fight this too,

If they too hate themselves to death

No matter what they do.

 

If someone were to ask me

I would say that I was fine,

But there lives a girl inside my head

who’s voice sounds just like mine.

This has such a happy catchy rhythm to it but the words and meaning are in total contrast. You made an excellent job with this poem.
