Eighty-six,
That's what used to cover my arms,
But now it's ninety-five.

Four years,
Ninety-five scars,
Five attempts,
What happened?.

Vicodin,Absolut,and Marlboro,
Razorblades,safety pins,and buzz,
Isn't that what happened?.

Insecurities,pain,fear,
All of it overpowering,
Sucking me in,
Taking me deeper still.

Cutting,slicing,slashing, scratching,
Bleeds and bleeds until it can't anymore,
It takes the pain away for just awhile,
But then all I'm left with is these scars.

This is great. I struggle with cutting, depression, and anxiety... I'm getting help for it now.

It sounds like you're doing better now- great job :)
