The Dark - Poem by Thoko Mangena

Mid night, the dark awakens
Its starving for my blood
my pain, my anger
I cant breath, I need the blade
I need the pain
Something is missing
Why aren't my wrist bleeding?
The voices are too loud
They are hunting me,
Breaking me
I need my knives
Screw promises
I need the pain
My bittersweet addiction
