Body aches

Screams for release

Pain & self loathing

Time to escape



Heart Numb

Dying to feel

Any emotion

Bleeding will do


Vein pulse

Flowing beneath

Life rages stronger

Raw & true



Blade sharp

Ready to open

Gateway of feeling

Alive once more


I refrain;

Promises made

To those whom I care for

And Questions

I have no answers to explain



A win?

Dosn’t feel so

Release averted

Life numb once more
