The Emo That's My New Name

©

Published: March 2014

My whole world is crumbling, falling apart
the worst of it is: it's just the start.
I lie in my bed just like all the others
Alone with my thoughts, hiding under the covers.

From start to finish I wonder why
I carry on this messed up lie.
"The Emo" that's my new name
as the bullies walk past I hang my head in shame.

I hate these feeling of being alone
I hide myself away longing for a home.
I sit on my bed with a blade in my hand
and take myself away to a new land.

I stare in the mirror and watch myself cry
Dreaming for the day I finally die...

I know I shouldn't like this poem, but the way you wrote it and how you expressed your emotion/thought, it sounds very relatable to my life. My parents are still here, but it feels like I'm not here with them and that I'm just a ghost walking around the house, because they don't care about me or my safety. They've seen my cuts and scars, but they never mention it (and I'm glad, because I never want to talk about my feelings with them), and they've seen my poem/quotes I make on Instagram. Other people have hints that I'm depressed, but my parents make a joke out of it.

I know how it feels to be depressed. I sit at home and to be honest I cut because I'm always depressed. I haven't ever had anyone to talk to so I keep things to myself and every one makes it worse cause they judge me for it.

I think that's the worst part. I promise you'll start not thinking about your depression and at some point (it will take time, of course) you'll feel better and you are going to meet people that will understand you and be friends with you. I've been there myself, and I know it will happen to you, too. Please talk to me if you want and you're feeling lonely. Take care xx

Don't do this honey, you're special enough even though I don't know you at all. And I think you're brave to do this thing to yourself, but you're only hurting yourself and not the others that hurt you. I know it's something anyone would say, because it's easy to give advice like that to a stranger, but you should be the one to care what happens to you and no one else. You're special
