Slide the blade across your wrist.
Again.
Again.
Again.
Stop.
"Doesn't it hurt?"
I can't feel anything.
"A little."

Punch your own stomach.
Harder.
Harder.
Does it hurt yet?
Yes.
Keep going.
"Why do you do that?"
The pain makes me feel alive.
"I don't know."

Stare.
Cry.
Scream.
Stop.
Keep staring.
"What's wrong with you?"
I'm dead inside.
"Nothing."

"Emotional freak."
I'm just depressed.
"Sorry."

Stare at your arms.
Your stomach.
Your waist.
Your thighs.
"What are you doing?"
I'm ugly.
"Never mind."

"Attention seeker."
I just have low self esteem.
"I'm sorry."

Cuts.
Scars.
Tears.
Emotions.

"Emo."
"Scene girl."
"Psycho."

I'm just human.

I'm just me.
I dunno. Wrote it really fast. O_O

Oh gosh, the "Attention Seeker". Whenever I hear/see someone say that, I get so mad.

Self-hurt, in my opinion, is a lot like drugs/alcoholism. It becomes an addiction. It becomes the only way to "calm down" or "feel better". And unless you've been in that situation, you just can't really understand what it's like.

I kind of disagree with that *please dont get mad!!* only the not being in the situation part. I haven't been but I've talked to enough people who have to understand. And I've been in a situation where I thought about it a lot and considered it. So, though I've never done it, I understand.

Also, amazing poem, you've really captured the way most people respond to the things that people say. Bang up job :)

That's good that you can understand :) I guess there are people that can... just most of the people I know who haven't ever harmed themselves scorn those who have and don't seem to understand it at all.

Damn those stereotypical bastards. They say stuff like that because they're ignorant. There is no shame in being yourself, because being like that's the only way you will ever find people like you. Don't give up!! :)

This is really good for something you wrote fast. This really shows the difference between what someone might think, and what they actually say. With people like this, it's easy to forget that they're human too. And when people call them things like that, it's easy for themselves to forget that they're human. It can tear anyone apart. I would know, I'm like that, too (except I don't cut).

It's amazing how many people fail to see the seriousness behind self-injury. -__- Or the real reasons it's done. There should be mandatory schooling on this kind of stuff.

But anyways, very accurate poem. I enjoyed it very much :)

It's hard to think of anything to say when I personally know that nothing can be said. But it is still a lovely poem.

Aww... I don't know what else to say this is really sad. It's even sadder that it's true. There are kids out there that cut themselves to relieve inner turmoil that get labeled as attention seekers and thrown to the side because of all the other kids that really only do do it for attention. It's a nice poem, and very true.
