"Love is merely a madness, and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and a whip as madmen do: and the reason why they are not so punished and cured is, that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too."


Run down and broken,
She can’t trust herself
Finding comfort in every stroke of her blade,
She understands that this is how life is made

She writes love on her arms
And hate on her wrists
She feels so alive
Falling into a painless abyss

Rescue is possible
Love is the movement
Stop the bleeding
To write love on her arms

Countless scares
She falls apart
Until after the blood has seeped,
She cries herself each night to sleep

She writes love on her arms
And hate on her wrists
She feels so alive
Falling into a painless abyss

Rescue is possible
Love is the movement
Stop the bleeding
To write love on her arms

Maybe if you knew why I support this cause so much,
You’d stop making all those cutting jokes…

She writes love on her arms
And hate on her wrists
Forcing the bloodied pain out
After each tear filled kiss

Let’s work together to end the pain
We’ll always remember the scars,
But we can prevent new ones
And heal our hearts

Rescue is possible
Love is the movement
Stop the bleeding
To write love on her arms

I love this. The lines "maybe if you know why I support this cause so much, You'd stop making all those cutting jokes" fits my life perfectly. Thank you. (:
