Her Demon Inside

Poetry / Drama

Anxiety

It’s 4am

She can’t sleep again

She’s drowning in her thoughts

Her worries

Her endless battle

She fights

As her demon rages inside



Her parents

They fret about the scars on her wrist

Why can’t they understand she wonders

Why can’t they see

That that’s the only way to rid of this demon within me



Her friends

They see the marks but never ask



She walks around with an unbreakable mask



You wouldn’t be able to tell that the girl before you was her

The same one three years ago

That would laugh, and cheer, and shout

The one that belt out

The lyrics to her favorite Disney song



But people can change

As easily as flipping a light switch

On to off

In just a single year



But what amazes her more

People never ask

She just ceases to exist when just last year

Just seemingly yesterday

She had sighed contentedly

Surrounded by friends

Saying

“Life couldn’t be better”



And as these words slipped past her lips

Like the sun sets in the west

Tears slip down her cheeks as she holds the bloodied razor in her hand and whispers

“Maybe life isn’t the best”
