This is just another poem. I wrote it for someone close to me who is going through some tough times and feels that this is the only way. I have found it hard to reach them so this is how I can express it.

Do you like it?

The scars you wear like bracelets.

How does it feel to you?

The blade that runs across your wrist.

Does it make you feel warm,

or is it as cold as the steel from which it is formed?

Does the blood that flow comfort you,

or does it only make you cry?

Do you feel like you are stronger,

or do you feel more pathetic and weak?

Does it make you feel more alive,

or does it make you only want to die?

I wish you could give me these answers,

to questions of actions so vehement in nature.

For I do not want them for my own considerations,

but rather bring me closer to you.

If I could, I would grow wings.

Not to fly away from all of this.

But to be your angel figure.

Take your hand, smile, and we both know it will all be alright...
