A Poem by Sam

Crimson beads, crimson beads
The blood spills from his wrist.
His mind gets what is needs,
But the pain throbs down his fist.
One, to three, to four, to five-
Red lines run down his thighs
He's never once felt more alive.
Dark night, lonely night,
Tears begin to flood his eyes.
His demons scream inside his mind,
He wishes he would die.
