    I see her every day
    I see her every night
    In pain, afraid and broken
    She holds her teddy tight.

    You look upon the surface
    A superficial smile
    However on the inside
    So insecure, so fragile.

    The frustration that she feels
    She knows that she must hide
    Her thoughts are so corrosive
    It eats her up inside.

    Often she feels nothing
    If only she could cry
    She's staring at the ceiling
    Wishing she could die.

    Another day has passed
    Another day in bed
    Paralysed by sadness
    And her poisoned head.

    A bully to herself
    Her body and her mind
    Punishing herself
    She treats herself unkind.

    I am looking in the mirror
    I despise what I can see
    I have come to realise
    That damaged girl is me.

    I really how the poem subtly moved towards its end with description. I felt every line.
