Put down the blades



Close your eyes



Open your ears



Experience the silence

Hear the limitless words that shakily escape my lips

Shake off the hate that you feel linger through the halls




Close your ears



Feel your safety from the ignorance


I hear my words hit the surface of the space
between us



Do they mean anything?



You’re too beautiful to feel such pain



The scars you hide are battle wounds




Bravery shifts itself into a shield, but it weakens everyday



The silent rush fills you. It surrounds you, and it takes over




You’re fading into the darkness




I reach for you to pull you to safety




The words reluctantly whisper themselves from your lips





Targeted directly




They hit like a ton of bricks




Recovery Starts




I reach for you and pull you to safety




I believe in you


The author's comments:
For anyone feeling so bad about themselves that they self harm or have suicidal thoughts, it does get better. I will reach for you and pull you to safety. You're not alone.
