Ice Burns

The knife starts to dull

Energy running low

Make the glass with ice full

Make the skin burn away slow

Salt poured into a pile

Dumped on skin, bare and naked

Tears run for miles

Heart feeling so forsaken

Press down harder than before

Pain surges up and then numbs

Go through un entire cube and then one more

The ice against salt hums

Against arms, legs, gut and chest

Scars like the knife

Hidden scars on my breast

Help me hide away from cruel life

Body now covered in sores

Thoughts in my mind turn

I've learned something I didn't know before

When the blades are gone

And there isn't a knife in site

Go to ice burns.
