Thin White Lines

trigger warning: self-injury/suicide

Thin white lines
Memories etched in skin
Untold stories

The very first
Marking my wrist
Desperate hope
Please let me die

Interruption
Hastily covered arms
Pressure eased
Mind clear

The second
blurs into all the rest
hundreds of lines
hundreds of times

Elusive relief
Cruel comfort
Proof of life
Release for pain

The very last
forgotten
unnoticed
fading away

White lines
Speaking wordless stories
Voicing long ago pain
