I don't know how to be okay.

Okay.

by cjhale

I don't believe it when you tell me everything will be okay.

Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is brokenness.

How is it going to be okay?

When I'm shaking on the cold floor of the bathroom with panic consuming my very being.

How is it going to be okay?

When I writhe in my bed at night, unable to wake from the haunting screams in my sleep.

How is it going to be okay?

When nearly every day, I watch my blood gather on my arm in crimson lines from where I dragged a razor across my skin.

How is it going to be okay?

When I stand with a glass of water and a bottle of pills in front of me, fighting of the urge to drink, and swallow.

How?

I'm not okay. And I don't know how I'll ever be.
