The House of Blades and Darkness


In a house of blades and darkness

you find all the possibilities when you are alone

stuck in your mind

thoughts blossom into blood curdling screams


blades bite my skin

pulling all of the mental pain into one spot 

to be relieved and twisted into cuts that run just deep enough

deep enough to heal

but leave a mark that you will always see.

the light scars remind me everyday

make me sick with disapproval


if anyone knew

they would hate me.

or maybe try to save me

but whats left to save?

other than a broken soul and a shell of a body

a body that used to climb rocks and trees

a body that now lays in bed shaking and crying

begging to be set free

but after one year clean

will you let it?
