This soft blade

Keeps your sweetest secrets

Kisses away the realism you've created so deep inside

Sharp with your anger

Guiding your fury

Temptation creeps across your fingers

Moistened by the salty tears that fall so freely down your face

The painful reminder of the life you live

The sheets that lie above your mangled self seem to strangle you at every movement, every attempt to escape this nightmare

Sweet redemption drifts through the musty air that you cannot get into your lungs fast enough

Sinful words flee your mouth


Scratching at your walls

Leaving their mark on reality

The life you say you live

Everything you appeared to be so proud of

Silence chokes you in shame

You always hated the quiet

Now it's all you feel
