Don’t trust him with the razor

Maybe, you shouldn’t trust him,
with the razor in his hand tonight.
I do hope that you find a way to keep your head
above the waves and remain afloat.
I just won’t be the one who jumps in to save you
when you’re drowning and
pull you up onto my lifeboat.

I really hope that one of the many days
you are feeling helpless that you somehow find the strength
to not resort to picking up a razor,
pressing it against your skin and making yourself bleed scarlet.
Because seriously I’m sorry but,
I won’t be the one who’s there to interfere
or to bandage up your self-inflicted wounds.

Because I won’t be there ever again,
not even in your time of need.
I so badly do hope that you one day
you find the type of love that you need to find
within yourself.
I just won’t be there to love you anymore myself,
I too will be destroyed along with you, slowly
hidden from your prying eyes.

  1. “I so badly do hope that you one day
    you find the type of love that you need to find
    within yourself” amazing lines! Self love is indeed important! I would be destroyed myself hidden from your prying eyes… This speaks so much! Those hidden sacrifices that we make for those loved ones who don’t even care about us.. Really well written!!
