attempted death

I took a razor to my skin today

to cut away the pain

cutting along the line prescribed

hacking at the vein

barely by a thread

did I, survive my last ado !

What peace did you find in that slice asked I

what peace did it grant you?

none, she said

none, said I?

none, said she

because I left the light on

glittering

flickering

flame

you left the light on, said I?

to guide you back home again?

I left the light on, said she.

it burned warm

tempting

calm

when wishing to snuff the light of life, said she

to fall

flee

run

you do not want to see what you are leaving behind

only what you gain by the deed you’ve done

freedom said I ?

nothing, said she

nothing

attempted death
