on the large purple vein,

staring and glaring at me,

protruding out

from the crease and fold in my left arm,

that has now turned into a deep hole

from the years of self injurious cutting behavior.

Each time I used my scissors to cut deeper into my skin,

making it bleed,

and distract me,

and relieve me

temporarily from my severe internal mental pain

caused from the severe symptoms and pain from my bipolar disorder.

 we all had to wear as imprisoned inpatients

inside the psychiatric hospital

where I used to have to live

I am blessed

to not have to live there,

right now.
