Silent yet deadly
The wave of tears sweep over her
As the knife slowly cuts away at her life

The blood does no longer flow here
Both fear and cruelty have drained it
Leaving the skin white as a ghost
And, what stands out most
Is the horror

The shock that stares out from those lined eyes
This person has become someone that I despise
And why, why did it take me so long to realize
That this person was my enemy

Because my enemy has become me
I look in the mirror
And I’m disgusted
Repulsed by the sight of such a monster

I have no pity for the tears
Or for the person who sheds them
She only lives in the “then”
A slap back to reality is what she needs
But it seems no one cares enough
To supply her with this deed

So she slips deeper and deeper
Into the black hole that is herself
Will someone please rescue me from myself?


Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind

(William Wordsworth)

such raw emotion... I really liked this one, it was just so, honest...
The words you used painted a vivid picture, words can't describe it, I really liked this one.
Keep up the writing!
