The Things My Arms Hold


Am I a burden?
Always uncertain
The scars on my wrist
Forever amidst
The loss and the pain
The cuts and the shame
And there they will stay
For the rest of my days
As will the guilt,
That glimmering hilt
Of the knife I had used
To deepen the bruise
I say I'm okay....
But what would my wrist say?
