Silver

She always looked for a silver lining

But never thought it would be a silver razor

One side dull

The other thin, sharp

Admiring it reflecting the single light in her room

Gripping it in one hand

Exposing her wrist

Placing razor to wrist

She turns her head

Gliding it across her wrist

Watching blood drip

Seeing a demon escape as well

 

She has many demons in her

Every cut releases one

But there are too many demons to cut out

 

She puts her razor away

Pulls down her sleeves

Waits her arms to heal

Then she repeats the process

Over and over again
