only for so long

only for so long can I abstain
from slashing my arm exposing veins
it isn't because of depression
I'd call it more of an obsession
has something to do with my brain

always surprised by the lack of pain
while becoming grossly entertained
it's been called a form of expression
only for so long

the way it stains my skin is profane
it's hard for me to try and explain
it's just one of my indiscretions
has it's own life, that's progression
you're not the first to say I'm insane
only for so long
