I'm here for you, any time of the day.
self harm, feel fat, ugly, no friends, no one understands me........

powerless

michaellottner:

ancient breaths
exhausted over wide plains
and strands of shore greeting
the distant northern sea

fiendish wonder is what
it would take, the taste of a
stranger mingling salt of sweat
drowned elders blowing bubbles

and the bubbles stop all the same
as spaces between fingers linger
stones sink on a mission
instead of skipping as you want

and as outstretched arms
bend at their crackling elbows
eyelids collapsing columns
there’s nothing you can do

life is not something
for mortal hands to hold
.

overratedsuicide:

1 in 8 people have self harmed. Be careful what you say or do because you don’t know how people may react.

In school they teach you
how to multiply 9x8
make you read Macbeth
and have you memorize the first 10 amendments to the constitution.

But they don’t teach you how to
stop loving someone who has
stopped loving you
or how to deal with losing
a friend to an unsaid goodbye
and a relative to a cancer that ate
away their brain.

At home I learned from my father that
alcohol can make as many problems
as it solves
but damn does it feel good
to let my throat burn instead of my heart
and to tune out the problems in my head
that I just couldn’t solve.

Because life isn’t 9x8 
and it isn’t the way authors describe
their characters in a story.

It’s those nights you lay awake
missing someone
wishing things could be different
and it’s the next day when you realize they can’t
and then it’s how you pick yourself up
after being down for so long.

I taught myself that.
