    dotsSpin, Spindots

    Her mouth opens for the pills.
    Her skin bleeds for the knife.
    Her body is weary with the bruises
    It has taken in this life.

    Her hands take what she wants.
    Her skin shudders at a touch.
    She never knew that growing up
    Could ever hurt this much.

    Her bracelets cover her scars.
    Her words hide the pain.
    She reads books about mental disorders
    So she won't go insane.

    Her parents are lost in alcohol.
    Her brother, in his own mind.
    She takes her refuge in her writing.
    She gets whatever comfort she can find.

    She's trying to improve herself.
    She's trying to clear her mind.
    She twirls around an empty room
    To a song from a better time.

    She's taking off her cloak of shame.
    Her skin is coming clean.
    She knows that better things await.
    You see, she's only fourteen.

      This feels like a companion piece to your other post about emotional coldness and emptiness. However, as sad as this tragedy is, it seems much more hopeful in its concluding lines as she 'takes off her cloak of shame' for the purpose of embracing her muse. Only someone who's been this desparate can know the comfort and release words can provide.
