Tears also coursed down my cheeks while writing this one. I am in a recovery stage; I just hope that this will make you realize; if I can recover, then so can you. I believe in you, and I believe
that you can do thia.

More tears dripping down my face,

I want to speak but I am afraid that you will misunderstand.

I am afraid that you will think that I don’t mean any of what I say.

I want to slice into my skin, but I’ve lost my razor.

I want to feel the pain of my blood spilling onto my skin,

I want to feel the pain that I feel on the inside, and I want my wrists to feel just how much I hate myself.

I don’t want to feel like this, and I want to get better.

I’m scared that one day soon will be too much, and I’m scared that I’ll leave this world for good.

In this moment, I think about Death.


I think of how my problems will be solved.

I think of how glad everyone will be to finally get rid of me.
