The Urge

           The Urge

  I want to feel the liquid running

  warm and soft upon my arms

  feel the sharpness of steel

  cutting into flesh like a slaughterhouse...

  they'll be no cries for help

  no tears - on the outside

  that this encrusted world can witness

  only my longing, belongings - thronging's...

  Running steel into flesh

  making rivers of nightmares where -

  dreams are just a reality of life

  the sharpness justifies my sins

  happiness - unhappiness tied together

  with each droplet of liquid

  there is a past, with each slash

  a future yet to appear -

  when this feeling is past

  the normality regains assurance, and yet-

  still deep within the urge beats silently
