Everyday's Pain


In a room behind closed doors
My trembling hand reached for the blade
My sentimental mind can take no more
On the bed in solitude was where I laid

The devil whispered in my ears
As I slowly pulled up my sleeve
Revealing scars that show so much pain
That a helpless soul have to deal with

The scars are stories written in blood
And I was about to continue the script
Willingly I let the knife caress my skin
In horrid silence you can hear the red drip

And it's like every drop carried pain away
Leaving my body so I can have peace
Leave me alone in my room but
It'll last only until tomorrow at least

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I do not encourage cutting as a way to deal with stress. The last stanza is trying to tell that it doesn't take away pain permanently.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
