L-I-E

Liar.
I can see the veins under my skin,
Emptiness begging me to open it up.

Longing to bleed.
Irrational thoughts are
Easier than fighting.

Loveless.
I'm a lost cause;
Everything makes me numb.

Lifeless.
If you loved me you'd understand
Earth is hell.

Lust for
Icy metal in my flesh.
Ecstasy exists in pain.

Lover, can't you see?
I'm dying alive here.
Everyday, all I do is

L
I
E

Yeah, I also have a history of cutting and burning. I wrote this before I stopped which was over a year ago. I found it in an old journal and thought I'd try and get some feedback.
