I walk above the earth among the stars
A mysterious man lifts the enormous weight off of my shoulders
He seduces me with sweet whispered words
Could this be love?
Spoken violence splitting me in two
Back-stabbing secrets kept hush-hush
War among those I called friends
Constant screeching in the name of love has become the prevalent sound in my home
Is love only affectionate hate?
Only he listens and comforts
But he wants more
“Display your love so all can see.”
Scars run in straight lines across my legs
Evidence of his cool and loving touch
Blood splatters against my skin as he demands more from me
“Don’t you love me?”
The knife kisses my skin as he cradles my soul in a sweet embrace
He has locked me away
I am trapped and unable to run
Help me! Help me!
Can no one hear my despair-laced screams?
My heart can no longer produce a rhythm
My life bleeds tears into the floor
Yet as I pass into the next world
My lover Depression seduces his next victim
