Poetry

borderline personality disorder by Kaden Alexander

i am a slow burn with explosions mixed in
barbed wire tongue, sharpened claws 
i will hurt you
and in the meantime kill myself
watch me burn every bridge
and rip them down stone by stone 
while i scream
tongue slicing open mouth
bricks digging into flesh
cold razors burn when dug into soft skin
but the summer sun means short sleeves
and those scars are too visible
instead i leave invisible marks
sharp words biting into soft thoughts
and i lash out 
i want to see you cry
i want to hurt you
while i pull out every hair from my head one by one
i watch to see you slip into my claws
and gut yourself on my edges
and when you do
i sob
