Close to the Abyss

My wrists know the stories,

They have been best friends with my razor.

My veins have come to crave that tear,

My clotted blood gives my skin joy.


The high from my cutting, my solitude,

The escape from reality.

At least I get to feel something,

Even if it is pain.


The glasses hides my sunken eyes,

The smiles hides the emptiness.

The brokenness I feel runs deep,

Edging me closer to the abyss.


Who will mend me?

Who will give me a voice?

The words are stuck in my head,

The very ones that could end it all

    I had a friend who was neck deep into this. he’s out of it now I think. This piece brings out the right emotions and I could feel myself getting sucked into the writer’s pain.
    Keep it up.
