Euphoric Stripes

A tiger and her stripes
Are they greater than her roar?
These stripes
This feeling
Wanting
Needing more
A transference of pain
Temporary as it may be
I find  euphorically addicting
Better than sadness you see
As the blood slowly clots
I find I am able to breathe
Stripes so soothing
And relaxing to me

Three times
A large drop
Watching the blood
Slowly begin to clot
How
Just how
Can I extend the pain?
To keep from this depression
And feelings of disdain.

There are many times I wished I would have done it sooner but mentally I was prepared for it like I am now.
