My neighbor is anorexic;
I think my cousin might be, too.
My aunt is scared to leave the house.
I don’t know what to do.
My little brother is depressed—
It’s sad that that’s not a surprise.
My sister throws up all her food.
I know; I can see through her lies.
My coworker has voices in his head,
They’ve labeled him as insane.
My classmate has cut both her wrists
In an attempt to numb her pain.
My best friend tried to kill himself.
He said he wanted to die.
I was the one who found him
After he succeeded on his fourth try.
Everyone around me is suffering,
Rotting, from the inside out.
When did this all become so common,
Self-harm, self-hate, and self-doubt?
- mental illness is all around us (via excapingly)
I think back at that day, as I lay in my bed.
I saw your face, sunburned red.
I remember the voice in my head,
"It’s over", the voice said.
I felt tears coming up, I wanted to cry.
I was so sad, embarrassed and angry, that everything was a lie.
All the things I did for you were for nothing, my oh my,
I just wanted to die.
A tear rolled down my face, as I fell asleep.
I was dreaming, sleeping so deep.
Hoping that in the morning my heart will go from peep peep peep, to a long peeeep.
This life is the last thing I want to keep.
All this time, I wanted to be yours.
Well, not anymore of course.
