Poems

Crimson Skin

Take the dagger to your wrist
Slowly, slowly make some slits
Go over the crimson skin
Let the droplets wash away your sins
Soak up in the throbbing sting
Just as it grows sharp-
Although weak in contrast-
To the anguish within,
Distraught!

Let it burn
Let it sting
Sing that song you always sing
Feel your head get fogged
Stand up on your feet
And do the wobbly dance
Wear yourself out-
Thin.

Don’t stop until you fall!
Close your lids
And drift off
Away from the insensitivity of this world,
Away from the pain of it all.

Let the synchrony
Of the head, heart and now the burning flesh
Lull you into a place
So calm,
You finally find some peace!
