I romanticized the thought of this release, but the song was sweeter in my head than it was aloud

Self-inflicted.

Sometimes

I think about someone taking a blade

and carving lines deep into my skin

like drawing music sheets on my arm

and then they would pick at my flesh

the unholy bits

composing notes for an unheard song

its melody elicits red tears

that drip down my elbow

but I am no composer

this song

screeches like shrill cries

and moans low like guttural sobs

as I draw a violin’s bow across my skin

it does not sing the lovely ballad I thought it would

it does not soothe the cacophony of noise inside me

that begged for a rhythm to follow

it is a jarring requiem

echoing low with a hollow drum pound

each time my blood drips onto the floor
