Every time I close my eyes,

I try to hide away,

From all the lies,

By night by day,

They swirl around,

Inside my head,

Without a sound,

Insecurity fed,

These horrific thoughts,

They're all my own,

I carved them like knots,

In my bone,

They criticize,

They wound,

It's my demise,

My tomb,

These thoughts like knives,

That cut away,

Yet my heart survives,

What they say.
