Wrists And All That

wrists

I wrote this when I felt I had no way out but suicide. Most times we feel as if our lives are heading nowhere. No good in sight. Just pain. I forgot what made life beautiful. It’s the simple things. It’s always the simple things.

Sometimes my wrists look pretty enough to slash,
When the world hits me down,
Bruising me,
Breaking my bones,
As I get up,
My wrists are the first thing I see,
Noticing the green lines underneath my skin,
Transporting my life source,
I imagine,
Picking up a razor and cutting out my freedom.

Sometimes my wrists look pretty enough to slash,
When words hurt,
Breaking my tiny world into smithereens,
Without a care for consequences,
I suffer alone,
Forgiveness a hard trait to own,
As I try to let go of the pain,
My wrists are the first thing I see,
So light,
So frail,
I imagine,
Picking up a knife and cutting out the heartache.

Sometimes my wrists look pretty enough to slash,
When the façade is gone,
Replaced by my true weak nature,
The world ignores me,
Time fast forwards itself,
Never pausing long enough to enjoy one single moment,
But always slow dancing,
To every painful occurrence,
When I wrap my arms around me,
My wrists are the first thing I see,
I imagine,
Picking up anything sharp and watching my life ooze out.

Sometimes my wrists look pretty enough to cut,
The pain I feel will go,
The loneliness will not last,
Sometimes my wrists look pretty enough to slash,
Then again,
Sometimes my wrists look pretty with bracelets.
