These words are my cuts

the wounds I choose to show

and tell all of me to those

who really shouldn't know.

They let me lose my self

within the rhyme and simile.

And those that I'm closest to

should never have to see.

So maybe you could tell me

what it meant to you

to see my soul uncovered.

It could be just a few words

to make me live...

And someday write another.
