Pouring Out

 

The pain,

It swells and grows

Inside,

Devouring,

Taking me,

I’m going to do it again,

It’ll hurt,

I know,

But that’s the point,

I’m hurting myself,

Because it releases me,

From this prison,

As the blood wells

And overflows,

Part of me pours out,

Too.

I feel,

That I can go on,

It gives me a sense,

Of certainty,

I know that,

The feeling,

Is pain,

It becomes my anchor,

And I hold on to it.

But eventually,

The last of me

Will pour out,

But I know,

If that happens,

Then I’m already gone.
