Bad Poetry

By @talia

Enough

It’s enough to make you want to rip your skin off

Fingernails are grown strong enough to take the task on

and when that’s done

It’s enough to make you want to rip your fingernails off

One by one, with your teeth and there’s blood

and when that’s done

It’s enough to make you want to rip your hair out

Locks of hair with chunks of skin attached, spread on the bathroom floor poetically

It’s enough it’s enough it’s enough

Enough

To make you want to scream

Have everyone stare at you

Who cares? Because it’s enough

It fills your whole body up

It’s spilling over because it’s enough

Enough to make you slap yourself in the face and pinch your skin hard

When it’s enough

Your family backs away

Your friends don’t call you back

It’s enough to make you eat the concrete with both hands

It’s enough to want to bury yourself in it

When you’re done digesting,

When you’re done digging

It’s enough and it’s enough

To not understand what it even means anymore

But it’s enough
