Cutter

 

Jagged barbs of wire

Lead me to desire

An endless path of love

Arterial sprays the dove

This wretched bleeding pain

Is coursing through my veins

And pulsing in my head

Wishing I were dead

Sharpened bits of steel

To prick the way I feel

Oozing out the mire

Cooling down the fire

Battle wounds of dread

Are swimming in my head

My blank eyes gape asunder

Pardon this curse I’m under

Like endless lines of wire

My veins ache with desire

Barbed and jagged pain

Drive this soul insane
