Today I removed a part of my soul,It happened a long time ago,
That time was dark, dingy and sick,
I refused to cope,
I refused to hope,
I didn’t care.

The blades were of steel,
All shiny and bright and sharp,
The procedure was painful,
The procedure was pleasurable,
I dug the knife deep,
To remove what I could.

There were pieces of time I no longer needed,
There were feelings I had I no longer wanted,
There was a sense of self I no longer understood,
I removed them all,
And now I sit for 1000 days,
At the bottom of the well.
