The red line slowly rises,
Puffy and bold against my pale arm.
Why must I make so many promises
If I'm the only one that I harm.
It's my only escape from everything,
My salve for life's harsh burns.
It's for when challenges are flaring
and it seems as if insanity governs.
It's for when friends just don't understand
And are suddenly horrible at advising.
When there is no helping hand,
The pain looks its most enticing.
It's for when the secrets get heavy
And I can't risk letting myself shout.
When I need some relief badly,
I sneak through the woods
where everything is covered in snow.
While walking as quiet as I could,
I try not to let my panic show.
The snow is so clean and cold
as it whispers promises of no return
to a horrid place called the World
where everything is painful and burns
