Stars twinkle as thumbtacks,
Matches, glinting in the ocean deep of the night,
So tangibly far,
And further –
The song of the flecks, alive burning bright,
Ink leaks, speckled with stardust, singing:
For even in darkness there’s light.
As part of a collaboration between the University of Guelph and McGill University, we are a non-profit outreach initiative providing information and resources about self-injury to those who self-injure, those who have recovered, and those who want to help.
