I Keep Telling Myself…to Trust that I’ll Be Okay


I keep telling myself

that this will be the last time,

that these are the last scars

I will gain by my own hands,

and every time there are new lines that break

the fake promises I make to myself

and everyone else. I don’t know how

to ask for help.  I’m addicted to the pain

and the blood and I don’t know how

to stop because I don’t know how

to trust that I’ll be okay.

About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
