I wrote this about my boyfriend saving me from my self-mutilation past. He hated what I would do to myself, and took my safety pins and blades from me one day and I've been clean ever since. I still get those pains from time to time, but he keeps me level headed.

I need to clear my spinning head

I'm drowning in the deepest end

Close mouthed and close minded

The flashing lights have left me blinded

I reach out for the slightest comfort

Knowing this may be my last resort

Then someone grabs my shaking hand

Pulling me up, helping me stand

The kindest eyes I've ever seen

Are piercing straight into me

Keeping me in a happy state

Helping me know that it's not too late

Now I never feel that weight crashing

Never hear those waves splashing

So now I can finally see

Because those flashing lights left me

And that hand that saved me from the cold

Is the one that I'll always hold.
