In my skin

I wish that I could escape

From my own mind

But I am stuck here

With my thoughts

With my self hate

Every moment of every day

I hate being in my skin

  1. My dear friend,

    Just use your body, your mind as an instrument, now the mind is controlling you which is like a wild horse that throws you off many times, you are the rider, use your reins to control the mind, the thoughts and direct your way to the light, to a new morning full of power and strength.
    Sending you much love and courage, my friend. I am so sorry that you have to suffer so much.
    Big hugs to you, my friend 🙂

  2. Very visceral poem, Nyx. As an old poet – there is no sense wasting time on self hate. Our time is so short here. Find the Joy – find little things to wonder about. Grow accustomed to your skin and be at peace. I wish this for you!
