Colors of Pain

Dark red,
Trickles down his arm.
A special little secret
Known as self abuse.

Fiery red,
Builds up deep inside.
He’s got to let these feelings out
But who can he trust.

Dark silver,
Is the one that he trusts.
The one that he turns to
When life becomes meaningless.

Long white,
To cover his pain
Hide his relief
Hide the cuts again.
