I went to write a poem about how I was feeling and, well, I found this poem, that I wrote not that long ago, and it puts it in perspective.

I write to express myself
I write so others
Can later on know
How I felt,
How I feel.

The depression
That urges you
To harm yourself.

Being on the
Verge of suicide
So many different times.

Crying yourself
To sleep,
Telling yourself
How ugly you are,
How fat.

Repeating it everyday
Every time you
See yourself
In that cured mirror.

Telling yourself
How worthless you are,
How you will never be loved
The way you want to-
Need to be.

People are always
Saying stuff like;
"Oh, that was in the past,
How are you still having
issues with it?"

But they are
Wrong.

The abuse you use to be put through
Is relived everyday,
No matter how hard you
Try to forget.

I would know,
I relive it in
My nightmares.
The voice repeatedly
Telling me I am
Stupid,
Worthless,
Nothing.

You later believe
All those tings
And it never
Leaves you.
Never.

I hope you know,
No matter what
You've been through,
There is someone to talk to,
Someone to relate with.

Hell, talk to me
If you need to,
I have been there,
I know it hurts.
