Shiny bright

it glitters like stars as the light catches

she is smiling on a friend just found

head on one side

tongue extends and licks lip in anticipation

eyes furrow as makers name is read

sheffield steel

thank you sheffield

steelers

showered and all parts bare

scrubbed clean and raw

sheffield rests on bathroom floor as bath is run

hot water scalding as tested under hand

hair brushing face as she bends over to test the heat

music plays its drone of love lost and innocence spat out

she debates if it should play or not

best left on

toes burn as daintly placed in the steamy depths

makeup freshly applied with black lines streaked around her eyes

red lips stark against the pale skin

tears once fallen stain the face

beautiful in its despair

sheffield is caressed and whispered to

its cold heart closed to all entreaties

thin and keen

in her mind it glows and is her best hope

she tenderly lays it down and up each arm

its sharpness almost a tickle against the skin

she smiles after a small flutter of panic

no

this is the right way

the only way

today

is

the

day

water overflows falling into the room below

her tears now washed away along with her black kohl pencil

fears gone

hopes gone

future now set in stone

death with a smile
