A blade seems friendly
It is anything but
A manipulating tool
And in my head it now haunts.
It once kicked away the Numbness
That stalked my daily life
And locked away Anxiety
For the beatings I fight.
But now all three creep about
In my mind they wait to lash out.
One cut was too many,
And spiraled to more
Because the promise of relief
Was my fools gold.
I sought help
But it was too late
Because my thoughts cut my mind
My depression fuels the heat
Of the fire where three monsters dance and feast.
How I wish I could fight them off
Or forget my past.
But these creatures forever last.
Numbness hide behind anger and sorrow
Promising to come out and play tomorrow.
Anxiety hides in the eyes around me
Smiling and trailing not far behind me.
And they blade will follow wherever they go
Offering to rid me of their blows.
But it is all in my head
I need to control
What my demons do
And what my world will show.
