The words left unspoken,

The action left unsaid,

The thousand thoughts that bounce around my head,

Not a sound,

Not a squeak,

None dares to peek,

At the scars on my wrist,

And the red that leaks,

 

Cover the shame,

Cover my pain

To everyone I play the game

Not daring to look,

At the blade I partook,

 

Hollowness inhales,

Death is my friend,

The pain has no end,

 

My shame is hidden,

No daylight can reach,

It’s against what the vicar doth preach,

 

My lifelong Taboo.....
