self-inflicted.

i can embrace
this pain
even though
it leaves me shivering and weak.

not like the harsh,
dark knife
searing through my body
drilling through bone and sinew.

if you know the hurt
originates from self,
it is less
and more easily controlled.

it is a relief
to substitute the horror
with a slow burning.
my body aching for the end.
