It Didn't Work

By spaghetti15, Harlingen, TX

I tried washing away my scars last night…
It didn’t work.

I tried cutting you out of my life by tearing up our photos…
It didn’t work.

I tried loving myself for who I was, not what you wanted me to be…
It didn’t work.

I tried pushing aside the pill bottle to save my own life…
It didn’t work.

The crying, the cutting, and the self-loathing…
None of it worked.

But why lie to myself? The truth is…
I didn’t work.
