Little red trenches, coursing through fields
Of the battle of my body, where soldiers go to fight
Like mom and dad do every night
Little white bubbles clean off the marks
But I know where they come from
I made them all myself, they spell words inside this shell
When they laugh at me it makes me want to sleep
The devil made a deal and I made promises that I can’t afford to keep
Waiting to become unbroken and repaired
I hate this razor and the memories we shared
Little red candies fail to kill pain
That is found in these trenches
Buried with my shame and the onlookers that wait
Little red valleys, deeper they go
Will my parents think I’m crazy
When I show them my mistakes and the trenches I have made
But they’re healing
I have plans to bring prison to the ground
On the battlefield a medic in the trenches can be found
I would call him if I truly thought he cared
This is not the first time I have seen him there
Little white bandage, redemptive gauze
Stops the bleeding, words so soothing
I am worth more than I know, though I’m feeling so alone
Little red trenches in medic’s skin
He is dying, sacrificing
To a sculpture he is pinned so I don’t have to bleed again
The words he said to me are swimming in my head
Enough to make me take the weapons from my bed
Put them somewhere where they won’t be seen again
This disarming marks the bloody battle’s end
