Soon we are coming up to our ten year anniversary
And there is so much I want to say
You’ve been part of my life for too long
And now I need to push you away.
You came out of the blue
I didn’t know what you were
I was just a child
And I thought I could turn to you.
Going round in circles
Pinch, scratch and bite
Ouch that really hurt!
My comfort razor I’m holding tight.
You’ve scarred my beautiful body
Made me cut away my skin
Self-harm you’re just a shield
You can’t stop what I’m feeling within.
You creep up on me now and then,
Especially when I’m feeling strong
Now I can see properly
What you are making me do is wrong.
It’s hard to let you go
You’ve became a bad habit
You make me pull down my sleeves
Lie to others about how I done it.
I’m fed up of feeling numb
Lying here covered in blood
You’ve consumed my self-worth
I’m giving up the nightmares before they come.
So many bandages and pain
Making my family cry
There is nothing to be gained
Its time to say good bye.
