Line by line

His pain,
Etched across his arm,
Line by line by line by line by 
line


Over and over and over,
Slashing the flesh that binds 
him to this earth,
Line by line by line by line 


The words echoing,
Words that are heard and never 
forgotten cut him slowly to 
pieces
Line by line by line by line by 
line


"Nobody cares!" He shouts,
Reaching for the help in hopes 
that they were wrong, that the 
words were wrong cutting him
Line by line by line by line by 
line 


They are there for the girl who 
everyone knows, but not for 
the lonely boy who is slowly,or 
quickly dying inside
Line by line by line by line by 
line


But I am here for that boy, the 
one who wants to escape from 
the cruel grasp of life, that has 
mercilessly tortured him
Line by line by line by line by 
line

I am here and I'm not leaving 
even as they cut you line by 
line by line by line by line by 
line by line

I am here for you and I 
will be here till the end of time
