Alone with your enemy

Alone with your enemy

A Poem by Bridget Mcmaken

My head hurts

I can't stop the tears in my eyes

I try and hide

How do you hide from yourself

The one that you hate the most

Yet you don't know the reason why

No one to hear you cry

No one to say “it's alright”

just you alone in your room

Doors locked

Music loud

Screaming loud as you cry

No one around that is going to mind

Shaking so badly you can't stand

back up to the wall

head on your knees

Hugging yourself

My head hurting

Tears still falling

Dying inside

no one knows

hiding it so well

your family has no clue

Everyday you die inside

no one knows

No friends

no one to talk to

the one that loves you don't understand

No one does, not even me

I hide the tears

I kill the pain with another drink

It's just another day

Nothing never gonna change

Because you can't hide from yourself

you cant love someone you hate the most

all because your alone

All because no one likes you

with no reason why

I just cry

I act like it's alright

no one will understand

Not even me

It's hard to deal with anything when you don't like yourself. I'm sorry you are going through this; as someone who's been there, I promise things can get better.
Overall this poem was painful to read, but very well written. The last four lines just knock me out. Great job!

thank you so very much!
enemy not enermy. Sad poem. It's hard to face each day when you can't cope. A change of thinking can help sometimes.
