My Strength

It's one of my dark days,
My mind's in a haze.
And I know I'm sick,
But I'm stuck in my ways.

I’m sad and weak,
I'm a sink with a bad leak.
I want to shout,
But I can barely speak.

They don't understand my plight,
They can't see what's not in plain sight.
You're my only ally,
And it's for you that I fight.

I lost faith me so long ago,
Mirrors reflect a girl I don't know.
I hate myself and want to die,
But I realize that I cannot go.

Because when my stomach aches,
I know your heart breaks.
I can't eat for me,
I’ll do it for your sake.

I really don't like the title I chose for this piece but I'm not sure what I wanted to call it. Suggestions would be cool.
