Misguided Coward




He reached for
The razor
Smooth
Shiny
Sharp
Thinking why
He Didn't
Do it
Before
Just one
Slice

Eighteen with
zero friends
Fat
Awkward
Shy
Mustering
Courage to
Cut his
Thick wrist
Just one
Slice

One girl saw
Fear in his
Wide
Amber
Eyes
She whispered
Join us my
Friend for
Pizza
Just one
Slice

Her bright smile
Morphed into
Ice
Stoned grin
Shock
Smothered him
Gang members
Gashed his
Stunned face
Just one
Slice

Never dreamed
He'd be a
Fool
Naked
Hurt
Scared and pale
Face bleeding
Punctured
Throbbing
Just one
Slice

Made it home
Knowing no
One
Would be
There
He needed
Mother's love
She failed
Again
Just one
Slice

Locked in the
Cold bathroom
Sharp
Razor
Grip
Hand Trembling
Blood dripping
Thinking
Who cares
Just one
Slice

  1. Very evocative . . . misguided indeed. I've never been suicidal, but the lure of the bite of a blade is a powerful thing ;)
