Damned Self Distruction - Poem by Jessica Carlson
Feeding into all the lies,
That bottle gives to you;
You’re meant for something so much better
Than all of this.
The tears you hide from the world,
I see the stains hiding on your pillow.
It’s okay to let them see your mistakes,
Cause you’re normal,
And you’re throwing it all away.
Up it goes into your nose,
Down it goes in your throat,
And up it come back when you’re shivering next to the toilet.
I wish I could always be there for you,
When he tricks you into saying you love him,
And when he’s fucking someone else
That you can see through your bedroom window.
The eyes you hold,
Are ones revealing age and the constant assumption
That disappointment is near.
I don’t blame you,
Because life hasn’t ever been kind to you.
You’re family doesn’t understand you,
The mother that anyone should count on,
Doesn’t want your family.
The father that should hold up values for you,
Wishes for you to take sides.
I know how this all kills you,
It kills me just the same.
I care for you more than you could ever know,
So whenever you need some comfort,
Please come to me,
And not the solice of the things that will destroy you.
