My best friend mr knife

by nikki   Sep 19, 2004

The darkness
the fears
so much pain
so many tears
blood stains on the carpet
tear stains on my face
heart torn from my chest
down my scars you trace
crawling away from you
hiding my blodshot eyes
behind my jaggedly cut hair
choking back more lies
reaching for that razor
covered in crimson tears
why do you stare at me
creator of my fears
i ask you this betrayed
why do i try to cope
with something as wrong as you
clinging to my spurious hope
you seduce me with your edge
my best friend mr knife
you save me from this world
release me from this strife
do not judge me
sharp shining steel switchblade
etch puncture and sever
i'm no longer afraid...
