Favorite Quote:
Omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori- Love conquers all let us yield to love
Sweat Dries, Blood Clots, Bones Heal, Suck it up and dance!
If they give you ruled paper, write the other way

You kiss me, I kiss you
I hurt me, and end up hurting you
You fill me with feelings
That are foreign
I cut to relieve
Because I can’t take them
But I want more
It’s a dangerous game
Raising the doses
Risking the pain
It gives me a rush
That leaves me crashing, burning
Bleeding, but I just can’t
Can’t push you away
You hold me in your arms
As I clutch the blade
To kiss or to cut
The ultimate decision I must make
I can’t have both
But what will leave me in more pain?

this was an English assignment where I was supposed to write a poem about a book I read on self injury
