Filling in the Blanks

In a constant struggle with a blade that left lines upon my arm

Transforming it into a piece of paper that needed to be filled in

The blood that fell splattered on the sheet below

And left me craving a remedy for the pain within

A sudden realization that carving words on paper is safer and effective

than the cimson streaks that would scab over

While the wound in my soul would continue to bleed
