[[[[[Self harm trigger warning]]]]]

i want to see my legs bleed again
that’s not
i want to see them covered in cuts
what I want.

(i have to remind myself
that all this means
is that the pain is
growing too strong
on the inside again
and this has been
the only way i could
express how big it was
in the past)

(it does not mean
that i am broken
or bad
or loosing my mind)

(it just means
i am hurting
and i must find
a better way to express that
this time.)

i do not need
pain and blood
to show the depths of my pain
on the inside


there are other ways

i have found

even if they take longer

(i am more than my pain)
Yet it is still part of me
