Fake Smile

hello again, darkness
what new has come to pass?
have you yet another victim
captured in your grasp?
I hope you have time to talk
with one of your old friends
I just wanted to tell you
that you possess me yet again.
so don’t be alarmed at night
at the sound of my cries;
I’ll be convincing myself
that I will be alright.
and I know you’ll smile when you see
those cuts along my arm;
remember when you taught me
all about self-harm?
its been nice to see you
I think I’ll stay a while
so I’ll be working on
my charming fake smile.
