My Own Blood

 Nobody cares

I don’t want to share

This pain inside

The pain that makes me hide

It drives me insane

I look at my reflection full of distain

There’s nothing else for me, the door is shut

I find solace in these still bleeding cuts

Red and burning

The familiar sting of yearning

These scars are my plea

But, I know this will be the death of me

My skin is pale, void of life

I still refuse to put down the knife

This numbness is consuming

All these emotions are too confusing

Never thought I’d die in my own blood

So much for getting out of this rut

Everything is going black

Looks like there’s no turning back

I don’t get a cloud

Now I’m screaming aloud

In this pit of fire

This was the devil’s desire.

The End
