My Battle- A Poem

My Battle

I heard a voice while I wept calling my name steadily

It was kind, it was calm, said it's okay, said it's easy

To take that eraser to my soft skin

And rub and rub over and over again.


Tears fell and no one was there but this voice whispering in my ear.

She said, "It's okay I am here."

I don't, no I don't want to do this and have to start all over again.

"It's good for you, listen to me. I am your friend."


If I do this they won't understand, what will people say?

"It doesn't matter. It makes you feel better, the pain will go away."

It's been so long voice where have you been?

Why are you doing this again?


The voice just remains calm but seems so strong

And whatever I do seems to be just wrong.

I stop crying, the tears freeze and I stare.

Voice you seem to be the only one who cares.


If you say it's okay, I guess it can't be wrong

I haven't done this for so long.

This eraser works, this eraser stings

This eraser brings the pain out of me.


1 mark, 2 marks, another mark makes 3

Oh no voice what have you done to me?!

I can't believe I have listened to you,

Once again I feel so blue.


Why do you have to act so kind?

Why do you have to mess with my mind?

True Story

This poem is a true story. It is something I wrote after an event that did take place. I am glad to say that I am getting the help I need now. I do still have my downs but I also have my ups. If you struggle with self-destruction, with any form of it, get the help you need. Even if it is with just a close friend. Reach out to someone close to you. You are not in this alone. You never are.

Cresentmoon, although a very sad poem, it was well constructed and the imagery was stark. I to agree with your statement, help is there for many of us in life situations, we must reach out to a friend, never be alone, never become reclusive, it hurts that much more. I know, I have walked that road before. Thank you for the follow, I to will follow and read more.

Thank you both Saddlerider and Jo. Yes, to become reclusive makes the situation ten times worse. And Jo, the more prayers I get the better. I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much!

Thank you, I am realizing more and more that I am not alone but there are several more out there that do not see that and those are the ones that I am trying to reach out to. Glad you liked the poem.

Hey Miss Moon you're never alone you just close the door more than you need to. Poetry is good therapy and you do a good job. Whatever the demons think they can do to you is insignificant compared to what you can do to them. Stay positive and let more thoughts see the sun.
