My skin separates leaving a sea of

blood, flowing down my left arm.

I smile 'cause i know I'm alive.

I have got yet through another day

of this. . .

My mind wanders to a blank,

leaving my eyes to draw back.

My breath shortens to a gasp.

I'm ready for my second cut.

Tears roll down my cheeks.

I feel relieved once again,

marking yesterday's spot. . .

I can totally relate to you! It's refreshing, exhilirating , but addicting! You should try to stop, I'm trying to, it's hard but it will be worth it later on!

This is really good.I cut myself too just to keep me alive.Its good to know there are more people who do it.Just stop eventually because you don't want permanent scars.

I love this. I really do. It helps me realize I'm not the only one that feels this way.

I loved the poem! Exactly how I feel when I use to cut! Well written. Keep on writting, but stop the cutting. It feels better when you stop, then when you really do.

I totally understand your poem! It's so true! I cut too, just to know that I'm alive, it's a kind of comfort.

This is so meaningful.  The line "I smile 'cause I know I'm alive" definitely struck a nerve.  It's very true. Keep writing!

I love this. I don't cut to die, I cut to make sure I'm still alive.
