A searing pain
Shoots through my arm
As i pull the cold blade
Across the ivory of my flesh
I look at what i've done
And i see the bright red of living ecstasy
Letting it sit to gently cry
Slipping out of the throbbing flesh
I leave this worlds harsh reality
And find myself in my own mind
Where no one tries to see
What they cannot find in me
I felt alive!
Not dead inside
That blade made it happen
That highest of high
I enjoyed the great sight
But then the high died
It seemed my world
Became unfurled
As i realised what i did (again)
Another scar to add to life
Just as regretful as the last
The pleasure i persued
And the pain i let loose
Effected more than just me
It harmed the love of my life 
All because of my strife
That bottled up inside
I swore to him
I won't take my last breath
To lie down and sleep
For 100,000 years
I'll be here at your side
To see your warm smile
No matter how great the pain
