Alone,
Shaking calmly in a cold sweat,
Cross legged on bed, head in hands,
A stuttered breath:
“Stop”

Nails begin scraping flesh and bone,
Hair tearing to get at the thoughts,
Biting lip to bear the pain, and stop the tears,
Yet a part wants it to continue,
Wants it to grow,
To consume,
Until there’s nothing left.

In the dark sat in utter loathe,
Blood stained vanity and silent screams,
Tearing mind from inside out,
Until it shows upon flesh.

Breaking words only to self,
No desire to burden others,
Facing it alone,
Or at least,
Trying.

Apologies to all of caring heart,
Inner conflict never a quick war,
Peace though found in your comfort,
Great peace, and happiness,
A resolution only found in self,
And until it is and mind settled,
Nights of terror and pain will sadly occur.
Apologies.
Some of the words I used have several meanings or definitions, and I may have gone for one not as common so I ask you to look up a few if the meaning isn't really clear. I can't remember all but one clear example is "vanity" (right in the title) I'm not using the "high self regard" definition, but more of the "worthless, or of little worth" meaning. Which may not make a ton of sense but I'm kinda trying to say I don't really like myself. Haha I just got all confusing, I apologize.
Hope you like it, but keep in mind, I'm not actually that bad anymore, it comes and goes but this was written more off a slight remembrance of what it was.

hmm...how about you replace "great peace" in the last stanza with some other expression? like content or serenity? haveing "peace" doubled so shortly after another kinda breaks the rythm. you know what i mean?

Yeah that was the point, it was like an extra thought, a moment of pause, sort of emphasis. I see what you mean though
