184 (who?)
As liquid regret drips down your face,
I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day, I promise they will fade into yesterday,
And be erased for the next tomorrow.

Your most frightening nightmares could transform
Into your most glorious daydream.
Remember to say goodbye to your tears,
Because once they leave,
It will be quite a while before they do return.

Darling, lift your sleeves,
And show the world that what was once hidden
Behind fear and lost emotions,
Is now exposed and ready to flee from your

I ask you to kiss your scars goodnight,
Because one day…
I promise, they will fade into yesterday…

And be erased into eternal tomorrows.
A quick little poem I wrote...
Decided to write something happy :)

As someone, who has struggled with self harm for years, this has an extremely hopeful feeling. It's relateable, and to anyone who has had the struggle, it makes you feel in a way, safe. It makes you want to pick up your arms and let your sleeves fall, and stop hiding so bloody much. It makes one feel, not so lonely. The words mesh together beautifully, just as a poem should. It's like a quilt, put together bit by bit, each piece having its own significance. It makes me visualize the sun, and lifts the heart little by little. I enjoy the originality, I enjoy how it, being despite about self harm, it promotes happiness. Thank you much for writing this beautiful, artistic piece.

I myself have struggled with suicidal thoughts, depression and self harm for years and this piece literally brought tears to my eyes. For a while I had no one to turn to, but this reminded me that while it all may suck right now, it will get better. As I've always been told. The piece reminds me of the time I realized that I was worth something, and it brought back many good memories of those who care about me. As a recovering self harmer that had a very bad day today and just wanted to leave this world I am here to tell you that this piece was right on the dot. Thank you very much, because this truly helped me through a tough day.

Great poem, I couldn't say more further than what was said by kurodoll20.

It doesn't have much rythm, but it doesn't matter anyway. The poem is still great, each of its verses bringing light into the darkest corners of life. It brings me hope when I read it...
