The Cut

These scars have finally faded
along my arms and wrist
the haunting memories remain
they will always exist

I remember each cut
I can still feel the blade
as it glided along my soft skin
I could finally breath again

Sitting there staring into space
I felt the tears stream down my face
such a blank expression
my heart drowned with such hate

Looking down I see the blood
leaving streaks of red behind
draining the hurt and tears
leaving me so very numb and unafraid

I will always remember everything
Still see it when I close my eyes
Felt such emptiness within
most times I didn’t want to exist
