Taking a shower

Stunned I stare

at the pain

the razorblade

as it cuts through skin and fat

the nerves makes me want to scream

I slide the blade once more

Down along my arm

The right way

I watch the blood pouring

as I lower my arm in the shower

the hot water

keeps it flooding

draining my life

A tear crosses my cheek

as I recall.
