Sacrifice My Soul

For you,

I carve the curved blade into my flesh,

Twisting it deeper,

Over and over again

For you,

I suffer

Bearing bleeding wounds,

I shamble on

Wearing a facade of normalcy,

Acting as if nothing bothers me

For you,

I do it all

As always,

Too wrapped up in your own little world,

You don’t realize

What I go through

All to stay strong

For you

Never do you see

The aged, scabbed scars

Covering me

To you,

It’s nothing more

Than a fleeting fever dream


Why do I do this


For you?
