One Rough Night - Poem by Hannah Diane Williams

Old poems I wrote,
Stuck in my head.
It's almost 2 AM.
And I feel like
It wouldn't matter
If I died.

At 25,
I still have the
Same thoughts I did
As a 17 year old
Lonely girl.

Maybe one day,
I'll be okay.
And it's just
One rough night.

But the temptation is
So real.
How do I stop the razor
From cutting my skin?

Well, if Jesus bled for me,
How can I still make myself bleed?

Topic(s) of this poem: depression, self harm, suicide

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I struggle with depression and sometimes the thoughts get dark. Don't worry, I haven't cut myself or anything lately. I had a long struggle with years of self harming and lots of self destruction and sometimes the temptation is real.
But I have to remember who has healed all my scars.
