"I'm fine" is a dirty lie.

The truth is that I want to die.


"I'm tired" is not even done.

It really means "I'm tired of being no one"


"I'm better" is but a curse.

The truth is that I've never been worse


"I'm just cold" is what I say

so my sleeves can hide my scars away.


"I already ate" is said with a frown.

I starve to see the numbers on the scale go down.


"I'm okay" is probably the worst.

It really means I'm about to burst.


All these things are lies to me.

But you take this as the truth because what else would I be?



Well... this is another poem for my feels about depression, self harm, etc. I know that there are many poems and drawings on DA to support people with depression and bring awareness, and mine will not help, but i just feel so strongly about it since ive had a friend confess his depression to me. so heres another one :) to all those peopel struggling out there, you are not alone and i think your awesome <3

What happened in your life that is so bad?

You don't know what pain is... what Hating your self really is.

When you look back at your past and say to your self, "that is not me, I'm not that person anymore"
When you love someone but can't be with them, because you are afraid you might abuse them like the rest.
When you finally make something for your self, but are afraid that someone from your past will show up and tell everyone who you really are.

When you cry at night, because you know you haven't changed, that your still the bad guy, that your still the bully and the nerd...

When you look at your failed suicide attempts, just as another reason to try kill your self again.

When you spend time with your friends, realize your having fun, then stop your self because you don't deserve it.

When you go to that dark place, and your friends become suspicious and ask question... Everything is all right, you can trust us... only for when you tell them the truth, they realize they don't know you at all.

My life is a lie... because the past is too painful to retell, to explain why your so F@#$%kED up, to make excuses for being late... for being a bad friend... for being a bad boyfriend... it's because I'm not a person any more, just an explanation of a series of events... a Lie

you know when i hear this form someone the one thing i say is are you sure but i can't force someone to talk to let it out all the pain they feel inside i can't guaranty they'll trust me but i always tell them that I’m there but still i can't always go that deep with a person cause if they don't want to tell me I’m not going to make them but i tell you this reach out even if some one denies you over such a thing then they were never there for you you will find someone to listen even help you but even if it's just in the smallest way you have to reach out to someone cause if your covered in walls people may not be able to take all of them down or think you just don't wanna talk about it

lovely work by the way
