Maybe One Day
Author: The Lost Girl


All this pain consumed inside me,
grows every day, even with this writing.
I thought maybe, possibly it would help,
to write down my thoughts, and tell the world how I felt.
But like all other things, it has failed,
It is just something else, contained in my personal jail.
Cutting's a habit, and quitting is hard,
I didn't think the self-abuse would go very far.
Though once again, I was wrong,
I'm only 15, but I've done it for so long.
Counting the scars would go on for days.
Weaving and winding in a crimson maze.
Maybe one day I'll find a better release.
Maybe one day, I'll receive peace.
