I cannot look in the mirror because it hurts me so
I am ugly, you don’t need to tell me, I know.
Every day is a trial,I want to stay in my room
Cover all the mirrors, close the curtains I feel safer in the gloom.
You don’t need t be so mean,
Pointing out my faults and making a scene.
Why do always have to shout,
I get it, I am always wrong, you leave me in no doubt.
I wish that you would just go away
In my room safe I’d always stay.
You don’t have to hate me so
I hate myself enough so why don’t you just go!
The Blood is flowing faster now
From the cuts I did earlier, deep , deep and how
God it finally feels I have the upper hand.
You don’t need to hate me . I HATE MYSELF, do you understand.
