Pretty Little Knife

by †JustAri†   Jul 10, 2005


Pretty little knife
I'm putting you away
Obstructing your plans of challenging my survival
Because there have to be better days

I'm healing from the salted wounds
That reopen on my inside-out costume
It hurts all the time...always
But I'm willing to be better than what you assume

You used me so many times
Gave me the impression that it'd be alright
After just slipping your point under
All you wanted was some petty delight

I'm sick of you butchering my mind
And of you eating out my skin
I'm tired of you tagging along
And flashing your metallic grin

I'm ready to end the pain
Without you in my hand
I'm a fighter, I will live
Because I know I can

Pretty little knife
Glisten your last smile
The brain's repairing what you've snapped
And it's all definitely worthwhile.

*There's a song version to this, but it's less positive than this, so I decided to post this one. Peaces.

    I love this poem, this sounds really stupid but the title is great! My fave bits are:
    I'm ready to end the pain
    Without you in my hand

    Because I know I can

    Pretty little knife
