Dear Self Harm

Dear Self Harm,

I know we’ve had this conversation before,
But this time I’m throwing you out the door,
I tried in the past but didn’t want to be rude,
For after all you had done me such good.
I appreciate that you’ve been my friend,
But now I’m afraid it has to end,
I cannot keep you here by my side,
There were times you almost let me die!
There were times when you just went too far,
As if to remind me who you are,
A gentle reminder you’re in control,
You hurt my skin and damaged my soul.
I’m stronger now and I can see,
You tried your best to take over me,
No longer will I wear another scar,
To remind me of just who you are.
I’m not ungrateful for I know it’s true,
I’m still alive and it’s thanks to you,
I know that I wouldn’t be standing here,
But the price you charged was just too dear.
I stand here alone and count the cost,
Of all you did and of all I lost,
Memories you thought you had to make,
As another piece of my skin you’d take.
It hurts me we have to say goodbye,
For on you I knew I could always rely,
I know that I’ll miss you every day,
But that’s why you need to go away.
You’ve tried to keep me all to yourself,
Didn’t want to share me with anyone else,
I can see you now through brand new eyes,
I’m not interested in all of your lies.
I wish you well but please don’t write,
Get out of my mind and out of my sight,
To make my point I must confess,
I’m mailed this with no “Return Address”

Love Angela

The Harm Reeling and Writhing It started one day when I felt like heaven. For just a bit, I felt like everyone loved me; nothing could go wrong, I was the king of the world, And it would all last

Dear North Star long poem

Dear pole star, I dedicate this to you, Because in my mind lies a question, why do you not twinkle like other stars do? Do you like to be there in the sky all alone? Do you want to rest,

Uncharted Self

Uncharted Self short poem

Do not go like a rose, stay like poinsettia. Now as a brutal encounter holy color will descend. Polygonal wound was too proud to bleed on the street. The scarlet morning will bring night’s blood. And mystery of love between
