RazorBlade Romance

Me and my blade have a passion together
Every time we touch
we kiss
Every time I slit my wrist
The snakes they hiss
The point is missed
They don't understand
She makes me feel human again
More like a man
When she touches my hand
And embraces the veins in them
I can feel the pain And then I feel numb
She whispers to me slow
My indifference is the sum of the problem I succumb
And no one
Or nothing
Can make me feel like her
She makes me feel like our world is absurd
And I am nothing but a nerd in a big jock herd
And I will only be heard unless I do something I am not
But I will not
I rather let my blood clot through these corridor floors
And decorate the bathrooms with red
as if...
As if it were sport
Of course
I'm healthy as a horse
And the knife in my flesh takes its course for the worst
down my skin
Down
Down
Down
Letting only real emotions in
I feel myself again
Me
myself
my only friend
Which I named myself
Dignity
Nickname pride
And me and her go for many rides
Find places inside
to write marks in stride
And count constellations on my skin As if my body were the sky
Fine
Says I
When I cry sometimes when my babe strikes at night
And
Hurts a lil to much
Fine
Says I
When I cry sometimes when my babe says kiss me
and whispers
Hold me tight
And it hurts me to clutch the knife
...
I mean
pride
