Treasure Island

Kevin Fisher

Bloody Needles

I told myself it would be just one prick
Sticking it in felt so good
I took out the needle
Only for a second
In and out the blood was flowing quickly
Stuck it in faster and faster
I lost control
I'm no longer thinking
All this pain without even drinking
More and more needles lodged into my skin
Can't remember where the first hole begins
My mind and soul is screaming
I finally ripped out all the needles
Felt pain
Yet only slightly
Looked into the mirrior
Can't believe who I'm seeing
Looked to the floor
All that I see
A dark reflection of me
And a large pile
Of my bloody needles.

    in my mind there are three possibilities for what this really is.....your version of cutting...cept using needles......your a druggie......or just keep hurting yourself......well done all the same

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
