I grind my teeth
Until they’re dust
I bite my nails
I know I must

I pop my neck
It always needs
I pick at my skin
Until it bleeds

My eyes, I rub
They’re always dry
I like the taste
Of when I cry

I bite my lips
I pull my hair
I twitch my foot
And I don’t care

Haha I loooove this poem!!! My favorite part is the part about popping your neck. A nervous habit that no one really talks about, but everyone does!!!
