Don'T Let Her Take Me - Poem by India Mysticali

'I cut myself
because I can
I cut myself
because I am....'
a frightened child
locked up so tight
a naught girl
deserves no right
a pretty girl
but silent dread
is building up
inside her head
so deathly frightened
but just because
she knows life will never
be what it was
shy, quiet, misunderstood,
curious, maybe, to behold
the wonderful love
that builds up gold
inside of her
magical love that saves her from
the darkening pit
that death becomes
she asks you now
to rescue her
to help her run
from her master, the Taker
don't let her fall
don't let her die
stop the Taker
if you dare try
don't let her take on
those cursed fangs
or lick the blood
and cause immortal pain
don't let her cut
her arms anymore
or lick the blood
from her bloody sore
don't allow her to
complete the spell
to continue on
nosferatu's tale
for now she approaches
her voice is low
She cometh for me.
Dear Merlin, no!
she chants her words
again and again
I run away
but in vain.
She trips me and
I fall forever
into her Darkness
the World called 'Nether'
'I cut myself
because I can
I cut myself
because I am...'

    I think this is very powerful India. Cutting by young people is such an important topic right now. I am so sad by this idea. I hope you don't do this. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
