Cutting/Scratching

Hey Dolface1. If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything. Cutters have feelings too. Why do you think we cut? And do you think your thoughtless remark does anything to help? Geez!

How do you cut yourself with a razor?

---actually, you know what, don't tell me. I'm probably better off sticking with my scissor. Curiosity killed the cat...
I never scratched, except for when i scratched at the scab of a cut and now it's turned into a scar. :/ Though i dont think that counts... but my boyfriend used to...he has this huge scar from last year, when he just kept scratching at the cut every time it healed and opening it up again and making it bleed every time...i hated watching...thank God i finally got him to stop...now he's just getting me to stop...

Yay! I'm glad i didnt scare all of you off! :D you know, i drew a butterfly on the back of my notebook that i carry with me at all times, and i named it after all of you =) SmileThroughItAll, Iamme11, ImperfectPerfection...

And EXACTLY!!! THank you, DarkDeliverer! For heavens sake..

Well that was longer than i thought it would be....but you guys dont mind listening to me right?...anyyway, look, i wanna show you a poem i wrote, its about the butterfly project:

She had pen-drawn butterflies
all over her arm,
They flew down at a tumble
from her elbow to her wrist,
Some disappearing onto her palm,
fluttering like fairy dust,
All the way to her fingers,
And every time she guided her hand
Through the air as she danced
one fell, spiraling from her finger tips
Until each was ghostly and faded,
leaving nothing but a dim silhouette
Of the striking pen-drawn butterflies
that drowned out the white scars
Weaving down from her elbow to her wrist
and even cloaking the spot
That her scissor must have missed.

ohh I like the poem! Pretty....

I'm assuming that razors cut the same as scissors, I don't know. I've never tried a scissors.

A note on scratching: It's weird cause I never really bled, I more just scraped away skin and it was like liquidy and later it became a scab. (sorry if that's too explicit for anyone.)

Awww, a butterfly named after me? c: I'm honored! Did you write my name by it too or just name it?

DarkDeliverer: Couldn't have said it better myself!

aw thanks! :)

ohh...o.o

Tmi! --lol just kidding, i think we can all take a little detail here and there, since we've each been through similar situations. So in my opinion, it's good that you didn't bleed.

Yes i wrote your name =) I wrote "SmileThroughItAll" underneath it, along with "Iamme11" and "ImperfectPerfection". All of you guys!! :D

Why do trolls even have to EXIST? They are just IDIOTS, trying to feed of other's hurt emotions. Go to h.ell, Dollface.

Yes! That is the idea. Anyway, if you don't like cutters why bother looking at threads like this?

EXACTLY!!! If you don't like something, then stay away from it, don't just feed off hatred of it! Geez. Stupid troll.

And Iamme11, nope, I don't mind =) now you'll make me feel special :D which is something I haven't been feeling at all very much these past few days :/

The poem was beautiful! And ImperfectPerfection: I think you're right. This has helped us all. Now I know there are at least 3 people in this world who care. (And one who doesn't...) It makes things a lot better. :)

ImperfectPerfection: .....omg you were!

thank you =) it really means a lot. If you knew me irl, you'd know how much it means to me when someone listens-- willingly. No one likes to listen to me.

Anyway, it's kind of a long story...so..i wont blame you guys if you dont feel like reading it...
