Letting Go - Poem by Matt Burgett

Laying in the dark cutting at my heart
I feel like letting go
Of the life I tried to start
As I now watch the blood flow

I feel the pain caused by razor blades
Screw my life screw it all
I hope these cuts all but drain
My life as I smear blood across the wall

Here we go once again
I messed it up and lost another friend
I want to bleed until it's over
I want to bleed so I'll cut one another

Here we go once again
I'm bleeding more now than ever
Cut after cut it's sinking in
I need a doctor to discover......me

So I'm letting go of everything
I'm letting go of who I used to be
I have changed so very much
In the last two years I have lost touch

I turn on the light just to see
Exactly how much I've been bleeding
So when I look at me
I decided I need to bleed......more

I'm tracing cuts over and over
Every second I let go that much more
Without the ability to feel sore
I give it up and finish it more and more

I am sorry to all I said no
Now out from my veins blood flows
I dropp my stupid razor to the floor
I reach back up for just one more

So help me to any of you
Call an ambulance make it so
Hurry Hurry im turning blue
I am sorry I'm letting go
