the cutting/burning edge

2004-08-30 at 01:09 (poetry)

i wait for it to slide within
to make a new mark on my skin
it heals me when there’s nothing left to feel
my cold blade of steel

its edge makes me feel whole
as it damages me in ways untold
reassures me when no-one’s near
replacing all my fears
