Seven hours ago yesterday I added to my skin
Five lines with my knife I branded in
Thrill passes fast, comes immediate regret
And who might see them; begin to fret
Hope they will heal soon if not now
Pull the shorts down low, cuz wow
Don't remember them showing so red
I add more ointment before bed
It was silly, but so satisfying
The moment the tip of the knife dug in
Not that deep, really, just a bit
Enough for it to sting, and it
Was just a line before I saw a hint of blood
And it was just a hint, and could
You excuse me, I just need
To get a bandage. Er…what, bleed?
No, my finger's got a paper cut
And I just gotta patch it up
That's all. I'd stop, I told my parents
And I don't go back on my commitments.
Tessa's the only thing to go back on
And when I do that, my promises are gone
A/N: To explain...Tessa is dextromethorphan. I promised not to do drugs again either, along with cutting, two amongst other commitments that are obviously broken...
And as to why 'Tessa'...Robitussin...Tussin...Tessa...and obviously, as found in "last summer", I did personify it, yes...
