"I am finally colouring inside the lines I live between"


i sharpened my pencils
Into stubs
And watched graphite bruises
Fall to the floor.
i liked destroying.
i sharpened my tongue
Honed a blade
And watched it cut your wrists
To match mine.
i liked destroying;
It meant i wasn't the only one
Who was destroyed.

The speaker in this poem isn't me - I was just inspired to write it by looking at my pencil sharpener
