silver blade against the skin
startling pain like a murderer's grin
just a drop of oozy red blood at first
slit turns to river, begins to burst
rub it away, but more flows
tissue after tissue, still it goes
relaxing, in a twisted way
but i did the damage, now i must pay
stress escapes, feeling free
more blood spills, mind at ease
blood stops, light switches off
quilt pulled up, pillow soft
sleep comes now, rhythmically
eyes shut tight, easily
need another source, but dont know what
and for now, i cut
