Only Madness Knows My Name

Pain, it's too much to bear
When it seems like no one really cares.
A million scars upon your arms
You shouldn't try to do yourself harm.
Tainted dreams conquer your nights
As you wonder if you're right.
Battles go throughout you mind
You want to wonder if you're blind.
So much hate has come your way
Should you really want to stay?
The blade sits there all shiny and clean
After a day when everyone has been too mean.
Think about the pain and hurt
You can't wait for the blood to squirt.
As it sinks into your wrist
The world around you turns into mist.
Blackness engulfs you as you wait
You think inside that this is fate.
The end is near,
And finally everything is clear.
You just want to let go
Maybe no one will know.
It’s the end of the day
Your life slips away…

This is wonderful.
It has over taken me with wonder,
& it has Drown me in pleasure.
It eases the hurt.
It feels the pain.
I love it so much.
