Ripping my skin to shreds
Tears moisten my pillows and beds.
My blood pools in the sink
as my heart beats red and pink
This bottle of pills sits in front of me
I am not the person I want to be.
This rope around my neck
My whole being is a wreck
The light in my soul has been blown out
My mind is clouded with fear and doubt
I just want the pain to leave me alone
but it won’t, it hurts down to the marrow in my bone
I fake my smile and tell everyone that I’m alright
but behind closed doors my soul is fighting this fight
This is not who I am, this girl who is broken
the way I feel is what I leave unspoken
How much longer must I keep on going
when the hole in my heart keeps growing?
I know I have to hold on just a little bit longer
because people tell me it will make me stronger
