People say it hurts when people hurt you, but I think its hurts more when you hurt yourself. You tell yourself that you're going to stop, and you do for a little while. But it's inevitable; you're going to start again. And when you do, not only are you hurting what your hurting, but you're hurting your psyche too.

Burning Hand


by XxmickeyTxX


It hurts me,

but I can't seem to stop.

I tried and tried again,

but I need to feel arm get hot.


I bleed on the inside and on the out,

and as my mind fills me with more doubt,

I drill it into my arm,

as if it will make everything stop.


The burning sensation,

it soothes me.

My occupation of life it at a standstill,

and I let the burning once again consume me.


I want to stop,

but when my head aches,

and my fingers tingle,

I lunge into my pattern of pain,

and make my arm ache again,

and let my eyes turn into rain.


A burning hand,

due to a burning heart.

I don't know where or when I can end,

but I always know when and where to start.

Do you have a burning hand? I hope not. Review :)
