how it used to be

What’s the best way to cover pain?

Hide pain with pain

Feel the flesh and forget the rest

See the red; feel as it drips

On my skin Warm and thick,

It’s a strangely comforting relief

A change from the my inside grief

What’s the best way to cover pain?

Hide pain with pain

When you need a quick release

Or just a tease

I’m asked why, it makes no sense

To hurt yourself at your own expense

They say Just be well, be happy,

Can't you just stop feeling so dam crapy?

O but If they lived inside my head they’d see

Feel the thoughts, feel the hurt, they’d beg to be free.

What’s the best way to cover pain?

Hide pain with pain

Cut, scratch and tear at the surface

An image straight from a horror circus

No way out, my mind my prison

I cut so my insides can get an outside vision

But now it’s like I’m addicted

To the pain I’ve inflicted

I can't stop, it's my gateway

This blade is here to stay

What’s the best way to cover pain?

Hide pain with pain

A sad poem Quetzala, nicely presented and worded yet desperate and chilling, scary is what comes to mind.
