Tiger Lily Love

The Silent Killers - Poem by Tiger Lily Love

Buried in my own insecurities
Fighting to stay alive
Everything I hate about myself
Is everything on which they thrive

Digging up what I know is there
Picking at my old wounds
Bring up the past
When even forever will be to soon

And I'm brought to my knees
After just one hit
Who I use to be is long gone
I'm no longer resilient

The greatest enemy of all
The voices inside my head
The silent killers who just can't wait
To push me off the edge

But I think I'll save them the trouble
And just jump instead
