Pretending

by Imperfection   May 19, 2019


There’s so much in my brain
Screaming at me
It’s making me insane
Constantly thinking
Wondering what happened
Why I feel this way
With so many enemy’s in my brain
Hating me
Pretending I’m okay
Pretending is all I do everyday
I wish I could make it all go away
The magic wand
Please wave it at me
I hurt
I bleed
I wish I was dead
Trust me I know it’s not healthy
I know I’m broken inside
I wish someone could help me
I write things down everyday
Try to see the positive
To keep the thoughts away
But they don’t stop
They don’t ever leave
Eating at me all the time
I have people telling me to talk to them
They are here for me
I know that’s true
But how can I tell them the truth
How do I tell the people I love
That though you are all here
All trying to do the best for me
The things on my mind
You don’t want to see
I’m so exhausted
I’m trapped in my life
I wish you all could see
And though I know it would hurt them to know
Honestly I just want to go...

    It's so difficult to fight within yourself. I want to say it will get better, things will change and hopefully those inner voices will quiet down for you. Keep fighting for yourself because you do matter and you are a very important part of this world. Hugs-

    When someone is fighting their inner demons it seems like there is so much darkness and wars going on that there doesn't seem room for light or freedom from it all. It can seem like a catalyst rushing that person to the brink of no return. When it gets so bad is a time to turn instead of family and friends to a professional counsellor because they do not judge but instead help give you the tools you need to win the battles and let the light in again.
    Sending you a warm hug and all my best wishes Milly x

    "With so enemies in my brain" love this line and relate so much to this.

    "The things on my mind,
    You dont want to see" this is a punch that feeds so much truth.

    What a great poem of inner struggles and demons.
