Razor Red Ribbons

By Morgoth

I cant stop the pressure you put me through
The pain that drives you consumes me,
The bands of death and hell open to encircle me
And bring me home...

The straight-jacket of your views confine me, breaking an eagle
Into a demon of the abyss,
The pressure is breaking,
The fire consuming,
I'll make you a present
I'll make it nice and tight,
I'll wrap it nice and right,
I'll cut it into Razor Red Ribbons...

The gift you dont want, but cant refuse
The one i push on you,
The gift of my Razor Red Ribbons
You push and I break,
You give and I take,
All the crap you dish out.

The jagged shards of my soul
Whirling around in my head
Consumes me and finds its way to my arms
Then I decorate myself with my,
Razor Red Ribbons

    Silent screams unraveling what is left of your sanity. Amazing that we suffer out in the open, yet no one sees it until it is too late. Gorgeous poem and thought process, sir. Bows- Scholar

    My mother makes me feel this exact same way. So bad, that it has made me want to cut myself. Such an amazing way you have put it into words.

    The imagery is brutal, a promise. Wrap yourself away and hold it all in till it's time to cut away the pain and give them the gift of yourself. Nice write. Write on.
