First Cut

The feeling isn’t the same anymore;
The first cut was the deepest, and now
The pain of any other isn’t enough
Obsession has vanished,
The black whole sucked the stars
Into a new realm; the unknown
But the stars, they miss their home,
The place they’d come to know so well
And their shining lights dimmed when they
Were separated; when they faced the truth

The feeling is just lingering
For the scar still stings, and it’s place remains
The first cut felt so good, so right
But the second you tried another,
The adrenaline was no longer there
And you just want to feel that pain again
That burning sensation
But it isn’t as intense anymore, no matter your efforts
And you know it’s for the better that the wound heals
But the feeling is too addicting, and you crave more

It’s been so long now that you haven’t had the full feeling
That you can’t imagine what it was like anymore
That first cut, the scar is no longer red, but white
Was that the most it could’ve hurt? If it’d hurt more
Would the scar have stayed forever, a deep red?
But then again, the heart can only take so much
And right now, it is confused, wondering if
The pain is just temporarily gone – hoping so, in fact
For though the pain was a constant agony
It was better than being trapped in this empty galaxy of nothingness.
