Age 16


A promise made to seven angels broken
This obscure must go unspoken
I'm sorry- the temptation was much to strong
I couldn't resist; it had been much too long
When satisfied, I stopped to watch as the cut bled
Soon all my anguish, grief and agony fled
A painful pleasure, a strong addiction
Brings such relief to my affliction

Surely, there's a better way to let it out
Besides the usual- slash, cry and shout
There's no on out there to hear my woes
So I'll just wither away and nobody knows
Maybe it's time to put the demons to rest
Instead of putting my fears to the test
My peace is disturbed, my hopes are shattered
My spirit is awakened, but my soul still battered
