Self-harm can affect you in more ways than one, to the deepest parts of your soul.


Oh, the overwhelming power of sweet delusion,

leads me to dark places,

in which i know i will get burn,

but still, like a blind sheep i follow,

the guiding light of my tortured soul,

a soul which craves for love,

a soul which desperately wants to feel

the tenderness to its very core,

when you hunger for love for years and years

and your appetite was never satisfied,

then you settle, oh yeah, you settle

for the few crumbles thrown in your way,

like a beggar you crawl to grab,

the leftovers,

someone was loved too much,

so he had to throw some of the love away,

so that i can take it,

that will be enough to keep me alive,

stand on my feet,

so that i can collapse.


Crumbles, Dark Places, Delusions, Get Burn, Love, Self-Harm, Soul

Thanks everyone! Self harm can be especially dangerous when it involves mental and emotional damage...physical damage is the most obvious and for that reason, the least dangerous.
