Random Poem:

Sex and Suicide

I look at sex and suicide
Both as things that end your life
Rip something open and let out a flow
Of life and love and possibly sorrow
Eventually the bleeding ebbs
And scars cover freshly cut stabs
But the memory of it will always remain
Locked inside your memory as pain
Pain that bred hate
Pain that bred fears
Pain that bred love
Later to turn into tears
The physical heals over time
But the hurt is forever locked in your mind.
