You draw
railroad tracks
on your wrist
hoping the
metal-made grooves
will take
you somewhere
better

But these tracks
you're chugging along on
only put you
on a train
that is zooming
toward a deep,
dark tunnel

And at the end of this tunnel,
there is no light.
A poem reflecting on self-harm, I suppose. I used a weird metaphor, but I hope you enjoy, nonetheless.

Wow, that's an excellent metaphor! 

To add on, it's like the deeper you go into an endless tunnel, the darker it gets, and the harder it becomes to see anything. Like, when there is more darkness, it's because there's less light....and since light seems to symbolize happiness, what's basically being said is that the farther you go, the less happiness and comfort is left. 

Nevertheless, this is one of my favorite poems of yours!
