Abusive Habits

from by Becca Cadalzo



I hide a flask in my bedframe, I’ve never told a soul
My arm permanently scarred, from every piece of flesh ripped out with my teeth
Slices in my lip, I’ve been known to let the blood drip
I know the taste of iron all too well

I have abusive habits, but tonight I’ll just sleep
I hate laying alone, but tonight I’ll be fine
I have my thoughts keep me up at night, for now I’ll rest
I’m feeling good about who I am and that’s all I need

I often regret my choices once I’ve calmed myself down
I hate living with these scars, I truly wish I could erase them all
All my toxic thoughts, I’d hate to be contagious
Oh, I swear it’s no longer my choice

So spare me just a night of true darkness
Spare me just a night of these tears
I’ll tell myself anything, to put my mind to rest
This is all on me and no one else
