I'm a shard of glass Splintered in to everyone's lives Once I implode Once depression swallows me whole My mind goes blank I feel nothing but emptiness And acts of self harm swarm inside my heart When will I feel like I'm enough When will it all cease to exist When can I feel unshadowed by this darkness Words are what truly saved me Despite all the harmful acts I'd put upon myself Written words became my voice I couldn't vocalize Words broke me down And then recreated me I will continue to live and breathe words
