Her Demon Inside

By Allanah_Cullingwoods All Rights Reserved ©

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”

ObsidianAsh: YA/NA.Contemporary. Neglected Rich Girl meets Bad Playboy Guy. Heroine has a few secrets in her past and one of those secrets want her back. One of the better writers I've read on here. It could use a little bit more in-depth of the characters backstorys but otherwise it was good.

Roxanne Rebello: Good book to read..love the writing and story line.must read

pencil: So is it need or is it love and will it be okay and is there more? In hospitals this kind of love is not on. It might go on but it is almost sacrilege and it is almost indecent. The way forward is to think in terms of ethics but as there is no need we just applaud.

Doryan Robinson: This book had me laughing and then crying my eyes out. I loved it! I really let myself get lost in the story as if I was Scarlett. I'm honestly a bit sad the story is over. I wanted to read more about their love story. Keep up the great writing!
