dont know

By , summerville, SC
Cutting, burning, and bruising the skin,
Razors, scissors, blades, and pins
Jesus, when does it end
Phases that I go through
Dazed and I am so confused
Days that I don't know who
I am.
It feels like it’s all crashing down
Like it’s all falling down around
Me. and I don’t know
What to say or what to do.
How to act.
Cutting, burning, and bruising the skin,
Razors, scissors, blades, and pins
Jesus, when does it end
Phases that I go through
Dazed and I am so confused
Days that I don't know who
I am.
I don’t have a hold on who I am,
don’t know what I want or how to stand
Up for myself, you’ll hear me cry
Guess im still messed up no matter how hard I try
To get help. it just doesn’t work that way
Up all hours of night and day
Trying to figure out what to say.
Cant figure it out, how
To get help, slipping under now.
Cutting, burning, and bruising the skin,
Razors, scissors, blades, and pins
Jesus, when does it end
Phases that I go through
Dazed and I am so confused
Days that I don't know who
I am.
Waking up, where am I, how long’s it been
Since I went under I don’t know when
This happened or where I am
Guess it doesn’t matter, don’t give a damn
But my arms hurt. blade’s on the floor
don’t know who I am anymore
don’t really care, all I know
These cuts arent just for show.
Hurts way deep inside
Cant escape no matter how hard I try.
Every time I move my heart breaks more.
Leaving pieces of myself on the floor.
don’t know, don’t know, don’t know
When I gave up, what I do know though
Im all messed up, no escaping now
don’t know, don’t know, don’t know,
Who I am.
Cutting, burning, and bruising the skin
Razors, scissors, blades, and pins
Jesus, when does it end
Phases that I go through
Dazed and I am so confused
Days that I don't know who
I am.
