freak show

whispers

murmurs

rumours

flying around

behind my

back

stopping me in the

halls

asking me

forever

why

why i cut

why i dont stop

how i can stand

to

hurt

myself

the freak

they call me

when they think i cant

hear

but i can

i always can

their words

sting

only making me want

to cut

more

and more

and more

deeper

and deeper

and deeper

because i am

the freak show.
