For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.
Last day today.
Today’s piece of music is Breathe me by Sia.
Slowly dripping red the droplets of blood hit the ground
The deeper the cut the more relief there is to be found.
Always careful to keep the cuts out of sight
In the bathroom or the bedroom in the dark of night.
The secret kept, the truth unknown
Always the hidden and worsening a darkness grown.
Hassled and bullied all of the time
Slipping under the radar …. left to suffer this insidious crime.
No one understood, no one could be told or trusted
This dirty secret is kept, must tell no one, don’t want to be busted.
Finally no more pain can be taken, it all gets too much
Cut, and cut again, end the agony end the pain. Laying there all night. Found cold to the touch.
