there is a fire burning inside me still

I'll just keep on
saving up these knives -
use them to stab myself again.
you thought you hurt me with words?

you will never know
just how I hurt myself.

I take them out each night
look at all these weapons you tried
and here I am bloody and broken and yet
not begging, not so fallen as to let you feed me.

do you know nothing?
I know how to stay hungry.
