A Poem by Linda

I tried so long to be strong 
To not do it again and just move along
But I couldn't yesterday
The walls caved in I couldn't get away
I didn't go to bad tho 
I did it nice and slow
Not enough to bleed out 
But enough to let the pain flow out 
Giving in was bitter sweet
I didn't know who else to turn to ...
I didn't have anyone . 
All i had was a sharp object to go against skin
I know I know
What a sin 
But I couldn't anymore 
I knew if I didn't do it i would do it later and it would be deeper 
Today my job is to just hide the scars ...
Next time I'll try not to let it get this far but for now ...
I have to keep my mind blank and keep walking through the day with a fake smile ....

Author's Note

I suffer from depression and anxiety. I used to count the days I went without self- harming. This is just an old piece I wrote when I had broken my streak.
