This is Me



This is me when I'm suicidal.

This is me with a broken finger

because I beat myself over the head

with a flashlight in a drunken rage.

This is me smiling.

This is me hiding the slash marks

down my thighs.

This is me with a broken heart.

This is me with a drinking problem.

This is me when I'm suicidal,

and I look pretty normal... Don't I?
