Euphoric Stripes

A tiger and her stripes
Are they greater than her roar?
These stripes
This feeling
Wanting
Needing more
A transference of pain

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

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.

Although the movie was an award-winning drama and was meant to play at your emotions, the entire time I couldn't help but feel saddened by the absence of Robin Williams in real life.
