The Sink (*Strong* self-harm warning) - October 16th 2020, 11:34 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Drip, drop
Drip, drop

Softly it falls,
The quiet sound.
But there it is:
Proof of my suffering.
The sink, once white,
Is spattered with red.
The water turns it
A weak brown,
And the drain
Swallows my sin.
It looks as if
I killed someone.
In a way, I did.
I kill a piece of myself
Every time I do this.
I weep crimson tears
As I destroy my own body.
Please,
Tell me when my debt
Will be paid.
Tell me why,
After so many years,
I still must atone
In deep scarlet.


Let's eat some spectral oats!

It’s the rhythm of your life.
It’s the expression in time and movement,
in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.
