The cuts on my arm

tell me I'm living.

This form of self-harm

helps me by giving

a quick, painful release

for a short little while,

a small moment of peace

to drop my fake smile.

The blood, a deep red,

shows my heart beats.

I fear soon I'll be dead,

my grisly fate I'll soon meet.

I'll say "Hello"

to old Mister Grimm,

and he'll drag me down below.

I'll gladly go with him.
