                                            I think maybe

the soft golden strands of hair you once knew, now dark and mysterious.
her flawless skin, so soft and pure, now rough, beaten and cracked.

there is a moment.
when you finally realize that you will never be extraordinary.
you will never be the person you hoped you would become.

trust me.

i am alone in my own world. my own life.
the only one who can save me is myself.

this has happened before.
i was in this same identical spot.
and wished death upon myself.
i somehow moved on from it.
but i am back.
hello dear friend! i haven't missed you.
will this time be the one that terminates my existence?

as i'm washing the knives, i stop and listen to their pleas.
their pleas to kiss the soft ridges of my wrists once more.

just once more.
