hurting way down deep
pain, so complete.

i can't think, I can't breathe
i can't do anything.

it's a scary thing to hurt
so bad.

it's awful to not
understand why.

you don't know whether to scream
or cry.

it's a crazy thing to
hate so much.

it's an unhealthy thing
to love so little.

self-love, self-confidence
self-esteem, self-worth

so weak, so brittle.
