    This poem's about self harm and an eating disorder so please don't read it if it'll trigger you.

    It's late and ask myself and my demons

    'What's the point?'

    There isn't one

    My demons control me more than I control them

    And when I look in the mirror and the thing I can see is more creature than human

    My demons tell me that I act just like one of them

    They laugh when I look in the mirror and they say

    'You need to loose weight'

    They aren't the only ones who tell me this but when they say it

    I can feel the panic in my my chest

    It's like crashing waves

    My demons don't live under my bead, it's all in my head

    And I ask myself "what's the point"

    There isn't one

    People check to see if I'm okay but it's all lies

    They only check wrists, not thighs...

    hey, this is really brave of you to write what youve been going through into a poem, it must be really hard but please remember youre really not alone in this even if it feels like you are and no matter what the demons tell you there is a point, youre worth so much more than you know and mean so much more to the world than you realise, you deserve to enjoy your life and feel good about yourself and you really dont deserve to feel like youve got to change your appearance or get so overwhelmed to the point of sh, no matter how tough things get there is always hope even when its so dark that you just dont see it yet, youve got so much of your life left, people you havent met yet, things you havent yet experienced, places you havent yet explored etc and thats all just a small part of the point of you being here. so please dont give up, keep holding on keep going, the world wont always seem so upside down and it will get better and so much easier to cope with even if it takes a while, youre already doing so well and there are always people who love you and believe in you even if youre not one of those people yet, this probably wont change anything but hopefully it makes some difference at least, sorry youve been through so much, i hope it all improves for you as soon as possible, you really can get through this! i hope youre okay and having a good day/night, please stay safe
