I touch the blade to my skin,
Feeling it scratch my thigh,
Not sure what it’s doing,
Until I see little bubbles of blood,
I stare in fascination,
What have I done?
I hear her scream,
She can’t wait till I’m gone,
I wonder if she ever means it,
If deep down she just wants me to go away,
Why he won’t save me.

I wrote this peice about a girl who cut herself for the first time after a fight with her emotionally abusive mother.

Put a ? at the end of the last sentence. Great job.
