Numb [Confession]

November 29, 2009

When you feel so alone
And know only one way to numb the pain

But if you know that numbing yourself this way
Only hurts those around you
Do you still take that path?

The pain and loneliness fills you inside
And the frustration floods your mind

Finally you give in
And you take that path

You find that razor in your drawer
You cautiously hold the familiar item of self destruction

You put its cold, sharp edge up against your flesh
And you carefully slide it down

Your mind races with emotions
As warm bright red blood oozes out of your newly open wound

You subconsciously continue, deeper every time
And your eyes flood

You feel weak and give in to the darkness
What have I done?

I used to cut until I was forced to see how badly it effected my family. I would try to describe WHY I did it, but I couldn't put it into words, until I came up with this. Unfortunately, I didn't have the courage to ever show them.
