Monsters #MentalHealthMonth

Cracks drawn
on dry skin
by salty tears
that the monster caused. 

In my mind,
they tell me
I’m worthless,
useless,
better off dead. 

All I can do
is agree
because 
I am so scared
of the monster 
that is me. 

I scream 
to quiet my voice
that's pounding
in my head
and it works
momentarily. 

The monster gets louder
and I scream harder
and I crumble
under the weight 
of the monster.
