As I breathe in the glass cuts my throat.
Im bleeding but it's not a medical issue.
Its Satan's blood, blacker than black, now filling newly owned property.
Everywhere the dark blood reaches, carresing the sharpest shards, I find myself to loathe.

The author's comments:
This poem is about my life and how hard it is for me to get through the day. Air is nessecary for life so therefore breathing glass is just a metaphor for how living for me is a nothing but a daily suffering.

Au Contraire... I think this is an extremely beautiful poem. Yes, it's blunt - but it needs to be. So short and simple and yet so deep and moving. Keep it up!

It's ok but a bit blunt for a poem. Some people may like this style but try and smooth your lines together. -making them seem like they belong there.. try a bit of rhyme.
