please calm me down

red lines run up my thighs
rub aloe on anxiety
sharp nails shredding through skin
I’m sinking in my memories
reminding me of times
I almost died but here I am
my brain keeps telling lies
my ego is so paper thin
it shatters every day
I grab glass pieces as they fall
I cut away the pain
but still in darkness death will call
