One by One (MAJOR TW for self-injury)



These cuts,
They slowly appear,
One by one.
Red on tan skin,
Rough lines on smooth skin.
I hide my scars
Beneath my sleeves
So you won’t see
And try to stop me
From doing what I need to do
To survive.
It’s the only way for me
To keep living,
So I bottle all these feelings
And scratches
Beneath my sleeves
So I can keep living
With the red bloody help I get.
