From myself

I can't close my mind
I'm tired of hearing my thoughts
They're harrassing me
Battering at my emotional walls
Bringing self-doubt
Bombarding me
Leaving me
Without
Love
From myself
Making me think it
Won't come from another
But why should it
Come from other
When it is
Non-existent
From myself
It reoccurs once again
Telling me
Making me believe
In the negative
Stealing love
From myself
Why me
Who needs it
Empathy
I seek it
Kill my mind
Before it ends me
Before changes me
Into Another
Other
One that keeps
Love
From myself

Really good; your word choice is amazing. I think everyone's felt this way at least once and you really explain it well. Keep writing!
