Cutting

Cutting

Scabs up
And down your
Arms

Each one
Is for every time
They made you
Feel depressed

Every mark
Tells the story of when
Your emotions
Over powered

Each drop
Of blood
Released from
The chains of those
Horrible memories

Every slash
Of the razor
On your skin
Commemorates a time
You made the wrong
Decision
