Self Harm (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #28)   Leave a comment

Tracing twisted pictures all across my arm
When did i become the person who takes pleasure in self harm?

I hate this sadistic masochist,
The me that seems to find joy in this.

Self destructive sketches drawn  again and again.
A false belief I am atoning for sin.

Or is it a misguided search for relief?
This evil, unwanted,disgusting belief.

Either way, the result is the same.
I lose my soul, and blood in this game.
