ink stains

like blood stains

splattered on the page

pen in hand

held tight like my favorite blade

as i draw it across the skin

words flow forth

spread across the page

creating something

release, like ive never felt

something miraculous happens

before i have time to think

it comes together

flows together

gnawing on my lip

tattered and tender

like an open wound

my hand flys and i create

no longer filled with self-hate

i stare, uncomprehending

my soul mending

coming together, i find myself

lost in the moment i create
