Poetic Release

I want to slice myself and bleed out
It’s all I can ever think about
I need release, not talking to pros
This pain inside, nobody knows
And yet I write this poem instead
Trying to get it all out of my head
This time, it’s actually working
I feel less and less like hurting
Thinking rationally now, I finally see
The answer is not to cut or bleed
