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.

When I started reading this, I had just loges on and it was the first thing there, it really intrigued me and so I clicked on it and it changed my impact on how I see others that are like this, and that it's jut who they are and because they express them selves, they end up getting hurt, from either themselves or others. This really is an amazing poem and it shoots to your brain to make you think, "hey, maybe that emo kid isn't as bad as we really think they are." And that's what I thought. I love this so much, you truly are talented with your words.

(( This is an amazing poem, in my opinion. When I read it, I can tell that when you wrote this, actual feelings were put into it, you were actually feeling something. I love the way you wrote it, the dialogue and your own thoughts afterwards and then your answer to the question. That's how I am; I hide the way I feel with monotone, lies, and an even face. It really strikes me and makes me feel better that I'm not the only one who does that. I felt strange being the only one who told lies to hide the way I felt and still feel... I smile and pretend nothing's wrong, thank you for writing this amazing poem and keep up the great work! ))

My biggest feat is for someone to see my scars, so I always cover them up until they grow back

And in my humble opinion, I didn't see this as glorifying the act of cutting. I saw this more as recognizing the humanness in a person and truly noticing them for their suffering. I think most people are ignorant of their psychological world and this offers a glimpse inside. You are making that which is stigmatized, visible. And for that I commend you as well! :)

I like the simplicity of this poem. The one-word sentences seem to be most appropriate and befitting for a topic of cutting. Cut. Stop. Cut. Stop. And I get the same sense of rhythm in the language. I also think the choosing of your words are powerful and convey the psychology and suffering of the act of cutting. And then at the end, despite the person's aloneness, you demonstrate how they are a unique individual with the same right to being included in humanity as with others. I love it!
