Simply a piece about my emotions, and how badly I want to give in.

The Polished Sheen

The light reflects off the blade,

It's dazzling and serene,

I'm not so sure I can be saved,

My only thought is that polished sheen,

A faint smile upon my lips,

Shows my intent,

As the metal gleams and rubies drip,

It chronicals my Descent,

I sat with this thought in my mind for so long,

and cover it up with a smile and a song,

so transparent that anyone could see,

That I'm not quite as happy as I seem to be,

A joke here and there to ease my friends' minds,

But the only emotions I play with are mine,

I think they all see but I don't know if they care,

I feel like they're watching me even when they're not there,

I attack myself to avoid attacking others,

I stick to my morals like glue,

But sometimes I don't know why I bother,

When I look at the hateful things they do,

Do they deserve my rage,

Or is my own fault,

We're not all on the same page,

I wish time would just halt,

At least long enough for me to make a descision,

Do I end my own life,

Do I cut with precision,

Or do I intentionally miss the vein by a smidgeon,

Is it a call for help or am I too far gone,

Maybe I've lived in this world too long,

With the hate and the rage that I hold back each day,

There's nothing really I can say,

Fuck the world is my response,

I've given life a chance more than once,

So to hell with it,

I'm just about done,

I don't give a shit,

And hey it might be fun.
