Poetry || Reflections #1

How beautiful you are
In him you thought you’d found an ikeji
How beautiful
Diving into him
Watching him watching you fall
Fall to your own pieces
Beating yourself up
How beautiful
Finding peace in slashing
The warm blood dripping down your wrist
How beautiful the color red
How it adorns your skin
The pain soothing to the demons inside
How beautiful the bracelets
That adorn them
Hidden away from eyes of others
Oblivious to your pain
How beautiful you are milady
So beautiful.
