My fans know that I've been having a hard time these last couple months. And now I was pushed over the edge. I went back to my old habits. The only difference this time is that I don't care.


Everything is going downhill.

Everything that was good,

comes crashing down.

Two weeks in,

and I’ve lost all my friends.

All communication, gone.

I knew it wouldn’t stay good forever,

but I didn’t think it would end so quickly either.

The urges start again.

They take control of everything.

My mind.

My body.

I can’t handle anymore loss,

Or anymore pain.

I stayed as strong as I could,

But I couldn’t take the crap anymore.

The emotions drown me.

I’m sinking deeper and deeper

And once I hit the bottom

I finally allow one little cut.

But it doesn’t end with one.

A second cut appears,

then a third. 

The pain has been subsided,

but it won’t stay like that forever.

I know that sooner or later,

I’ll start to drown again.

I'll sink deeper and deeper.

And once I hit the bottom,

I’ll allow one little cut.

But, it won't stop there.

i'm truly sorry about what your life is like. you can believe me or not, but i've been there. if you want to know more about me read my "a friend if you need one". it's an offer two other teens have taken me up on so i can't say i'll be quick at getting back to you but i'll be happy to talk to you if you need someone. i'm just a guy, no answers. i seem to be tuned to poems like this, so i felt it. it was well done too.
