He grabbed my arm tightly, revealing a thousand scars
His burning eyes locked into mine as they burned into me like lava.

"Look at this," he screamed, with anguish.
Then he told me, "If you are going to cut yourself again, then you are going to take my arm and cut it as many as you cut yourself. "
