memoirs of a masochist

You say it hurts to be this way, let me see your pain.

You say the cut was just as deep, let me see  you bleed.

Deaf to your screams. Blind to your pain. Numb to your torment.

Addicted to tears, my melancholy masterpiece.

Anguish relentless, the dagger turns.

Cold and ashen indifference.

To the fear. To the wound. To the burn.
