A Rusty Blade This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I hold you close

Like a small child

Staying with you

As long as I can

Then hurting you...

The sharp blade of a knife

Piercing the heart

Breaking the soul

And pulling away

Leaving you to choke on your own tears

Trying to forget what I have done

Trying to move on



Coming back

I wish you'd hold me close

Like a small child

And stay with me

But you pull away

Hiding behind your eyes

Like so many others

Leaving me to choke on my own tears

As you stab me with the rusty blade

Of that same knife

Dripping with your own blood

And flee
