Tick Tick Tick
She is a bomb, waiting to explode
They tiptoe around her and whisper when she is near
To afraid to upset her
To weak to confront her
Tick Tick Tick
They act as if I don’t know
As if I cant see the scars on her arms
As if I wasn’t the who found out first
Tick Tick Tick
Make sure she is not doing" something stupid".
Is code for make sure she doesn’t cut herself
She is to fragile
She cant handle things the way we can
Tick Tick Tick

This poem is about my sister. She cuts herself and is severly depressed and suicidal.
