Enough Guts

Tap into

Sweet smile

It grins from ear to ear

Pushing the blade closer

Throat is tight

Often it ends

Blood shed

And bandaids

Cover up the other wounds

Blood

It always bleeds through

Sweet smile

Grins from ear to ear

Redo

Take all the quick movements back

There’s always a blade waiting

On the nightstand

Quick

Hit the switch

Before I do

Acted so well

Next move

For the sake of

Motives have already been questioned

Wrist held tight

The blade takes the fall

Thrown aside

Quick

Hit the switch

First to

Grab the blade

Gets the cut
