Dreaming Of Blood

I lay solemnly asleep-
Crimson droplets rain down
The heavens are weeping for me-
Releasing all the tears that I won't

I'm cradled by the secrets from within
And the promises of hope that I'm afraid to sing
Along with those memories that bring me to the very brink
-
My closed eyes peer up at the sun-stained sky
Painting a portrait of a desired life

Yearning to feel what it's like to live without strife
As my unconscious hand reaches for a trustworthy knife

I open myself up for the first time
And experience my body shiver and cry

A RED RELEASE! / A LIQUID SCREAM!
A CHAIN UNLEASHED! / A NIGHTMARE FREED!

Casting away the years of past consequences
I hit rock-bottom many times before- so I'll do anything to become painless

I temporarily let go and stop another era of darkness
And I can feel once again from acting so careless

I consider it harmless if I survive my own carnage
It's the only solution that works against my problems, so I'll do it regardless
-
The icy-hot steel continues to shred me into pieces-
This wicked-beautiful blade promises to always put me at ease

Stealing away every heavy memory-
I've grown attached to this kind-hearted thief

This self-inflicting path is my only way to peace
The wounds heal and cease the anxiety that's killing me slowly
So please, allow me to have it my way because this is what I need to breathe
Please....let me dream of this....forever...
I need to bleed....to....keep myself together...

WOW.... I absolutely love this poem. I can relate. I used to cut. it seems that when life gets too much, too hard to understand, you just need to let go with the movement of a knife carassing your skin.
