I try so hard to help the people in pain.
When really I'm one of them.
I try to stop them from the blade.
When really I'm the one who takes it out.

I need the open space,

Somewhere other than this corner I am in.

I need these feelings of relief,

Without taking out the knife I've used so many times.

.

I need to experience the hurt,

Without being pushed away from everybody.

I need to experience the lonliness,

Without being the only left alone in this world.

.

These screams stuck in my throat,

Won't let lose.

This mask stuck to my face,

I won't take off.

.

Happiness seems like such a strong word,

When you can't feel it.

Hate seems so much more of a companion,

When it's forced upon you every single day.

.

I try hard to force back the tears,

And not to sob.

I try hard to toughen up for everybody I know,

And not be like one of them.

.

But finally those screams break free,

The ones that have been there in my mouth forever.

And the mask that has been hiding my true face,

Has been ripped off.

.

No more am I the helper searching for the hurt,

But I am the hurt running away from the helper.

I'm scared and my feet just keep pounding,

Taking to the uneven rhythm of my broken heart.

.

Finally those tears break lose,

And I sob uncontrollably.

The blood that runs from my open wounds,

Is the blood that poisons.

.

Killed inside by my own power,

Unable to control this secret urge.

I have come free of who I thought I was,

Because of mind over matter.
