I'm Scared

My thoughts are terrifying

I'm scared of the thoughts inside my head,

the things that should remain unsaid.

I feel the hatred kicking in

but there's no way for me to begin

to fight the intrusive

thoughts that are abusive.

They beat me up, inside and out.

Can't I have one day where they don't roam about?

I'm struggling with depression but I don't want to give in to my negative thoughts. If I do, it will get worse and regret will eat me alive. It's a vicious cycle and so hard to escape. I want to get better so bad but it feels impossible.
