self harm by Brunni87 self harm :iconbrunni87:Brunni87 562 119
Lay down your right to be human.
Put on a dazzling smile so that no one can see your pain.
You hide it all so well, but underneath your shirt you can still feel the scars.
No one knows what it is like to be you.
Your smile is but one in a billion,
A mask that you wear to ward off the questions.
Your scars are your war paint,
But this is a losing battle.
You are sent to face the demons all alone, though they will never leave your side.
So keep that pretty smile steady,
And don't let one tear drop from those stormy eyes.
Put on your war paint and go out into the world, where your smile makes you just like them.

Whiskey boy, ruby boy.
1. It has been twenty seven days since I last let the
    hawk-eyed man into my head, ninety four hours
    since I last drank myself to sleep, and thirty two
    minutes since I last kept my mother from the truth.
    Tonight, she still thinks I have hope, but it may be
    the last time she believes I'm still whole.
i. Last night, I dreamt of the boy next door, the gun
    in his drawer, the whiskey under his bed, the hate
    in his eyes when he drags me out of bed to tell me
    I've ruined another story, I've fanned another flame.
    This boy does not know my mother, but I suspect
    they would get along quite well.
2. The last time my father crossed the ocean, I explained
    to my mother that the cogs ground too hard, that the
    words cut
