A Cry For Help

I miss your bare touch on my pink flushed cheeks
Your warm breath on the nape of my neck
I miss your sweet kisses
And your oh so gentle touch

It's been a while since I've seen you
And it's driving me mad
I don't know if I can go on
As I've been really sad

I've never felt this lost
Or in need of a hug
It's all I asked for
You're all I need

I tried to talk
But all you did was ignore
I felt lost and lonely
With no escape

Confused, down and desperate
I held up the blade
Lost in my thoughts
Admiring its gleaming power

I pictured an image
It brought a smirk to my face
It was kind of twisted
And it made me sad

I knew it wouldn't solve much
But I decided to try
So I held the blade down
And sent out a cry

It slithered through my skin
So easily it did
Relief I felt

So I pressed down a little harder
as the blood poured down

Tears streaming down
I couldn't believe
Has this is what it's come to ?

U'v changed me so much
Look what I've become
I should've stayed away
I really wish I did

But it's too late now
No turning back
So i pressed a little harder
As it all turned black
