I find myself falling,
Giving into gravity,
Being pulled toward the cold hard concrete that is suppose to be below my feet.
I see them all over you,
On your wrist and ankles,
I don’t think I can handle the pressure in my chest any longer.
Your mouth is moving but all I can hear is the thump of my heart growing louder and louder,
You start to fade away,
Out of my mind and eyes,
I finally feel the hard hit of coldness on my skin.

My best friend had a very bad relationship that she went through, she felt that5 she had no other choice and started to cut herself. This is about when she showed the cuts to me.

Really dark in mood, but very effective description of someone's emotions. Nice work.

She does it every now and then but has mostly stopped. She doesn't desire death but does it because she says it releses her pain, I will still always be by her side.

i do it also it helps release my pain. Talk to her. Make sure that she doesnt desire death  but and if she does then help her and do not leave her side. I desired it for a long time but i finally got help and I secretly still cut.
