What’s In My Mind

Out of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most.” Mark Twain


“It is not the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”― Aisha Mirza



Everyday people see me

Living like anyone else

From the outside, I look fine

But I am raging inside


I look like one of the guys

I talk like nothing is wrong

I laugh like I am alright

I even crack jokes sometimes


No one knows what's in my mind

My brain is like a haywire

I am battling my demons

I feel like I will explode


If you can see through my eyes

You wonder what I have lost

My lips look like I'm smiling

Not my heart it is bleeding


When I am all by myself

My solace is that one pill

To free me from everything

As I cry myself to sleep


In the morn when I wake up

I can sense the heaviness

Then I look in the mirror

Another day to pretend


How long can I keep this up

I'm losing ground! I'm drowning

I want to ask for that help

Before it becomes too late



Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.” Mariska Hargitay

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.” — Albus Dumbledore
