Return to the Violent Mind

October 11, 2012 by AJ Huffman in Poetry

I am my own
razor-blade dream.
Stripes of bleeding dark
across my life.
And I know it’s deadly.
But it’s automatic.
Some semi-conscious suicidal impulse.
With manifestations so bizarre.
They appear almost beautiful.
Completely tragic.
I will adore them.
Straight to my end.
