Help Me!!... It taunts again...

By Cutting_for_Freedom

It shines
It taunts

I must over come
I can't too weak

It's cold
It's sharp

I will make it
No, I won't

A tear falls
It shines more

Ever so taunting
I can't take it anymore!

She screams
She cries

Slowly and ever so carefully
She picks up the knife...

Back in the drawer it goes
The drawer with the lock
Till the battle continues next time

She escaped with out a mark, not even a scratch
But the war is never over

She will stay strong
Carry on

The knife
No longer her answer to everything

With the knife locked away
Hopefully for good

She cries hersef silently to sleep.

    Congratulations on kicking the habit; I know it can be a difficult one to kick, but you have my praise and respect for every moment you continue to resist it. I'm happy this poem didn't end as I guessed it would from the beginning.
