It's a rush of relief
Physical pain overcomes the emotional pain and you feel lighter.
You become transfixed in the shine of that ruby bracelet.
But then the reality floods in and bring along with it, the panic.
It makes you think,
'Why am I hurting myself even more than I already am?'
And you wish you could erase it all,
Leaving a procelain chain behind to remind you
Of just how right you were.
This is the reality of self-harm. My reality, I tell you shamefully.
