I feel you in this poem. I feel that there is alot of confusion wheather to do it or not. Im there, I just wish I can put it into words instead of action
Kari
I can relate so much actually, i have a self injury problem too, an eating disorder and ive tried to commit suicide also, but you have to know you can make it, you seem like such a beatiful person, and if I was right by you i'd reach over and hug you haha, good luck! Great poem!

i love this poem. me and my other friend who feels this way read it over and over again. it's so descriptive, and says everything. we all feel you're pain, we know that pain, it's inside us.
Kylee
very nice, i have plenty of poems that i have written about this type of "release". and i'm always intrigued when i read other poems about cutting.
Brittany
This poem shows every image, every thought, every memory of things i have done in the past and still do, it shows. me
Juri
A beautiful poem. I like how the author wraps the poem up. seeing the children play clearly through the window. then at the end,"distorted" ^^. And I LOOOVE the alliteration. lots of devices used here! :)
Kellie
wow. that poem so easily could have been about me, it's exactly how i feel, what i do. thankyou for putting my life into such wonderful words. you are an amazing writer.
Jess
This was a very touching poem. This poem really represents what i used to do, and what i used to feel like. It was incredible.
Jasmin
Hey I loved your poem, it sound like things I do. It really touched me well in a way yeah. but I wanted to say no one should go through with that . Yeah
Whitney
I havent done thant in about a year and half. My mind still revisits it every day but somehow iwithstand the need for release. The scars are enough to explaine to strangers i cant imagine explaining it to my future children. what am i gingt say opps i fell and andedon a rake.

It's beautiful. It's like you're telling a story of how I feel. It helps to know that there are others who feel similarly.
sarah
i thought it was beautiful. keep writing!
Amanda
Your poem is really good. It's one of those ones that have to be read slowly to fully understand what you're feeling. I love those poems; awesome job. I also love it cuz that's exactly what I do too. Anyways, it's an awesome poem :)
Jessica
This poem is a really sad but true one for me. I use to cut my self. But I stopped. I am okay with a couple of scars. But I love this poem!
little_chickadee
i truely love this poem! It's deep. very deep, and it was likely only meant to describe one persons feelings, your own of course, but describes many others feelings also. man i wash i could write like you! keep up the good poetry! ps. i'm deeply sorry that you feel this way if it is you you are writing about (which i think it's obvious you are)

bunny

ange
Very true and touches my heart because i was at that place also, I used to think i was the only one who did that.
Jen
It is a great poem, just a sad revelation that it really does happen to so many people and no one notices it happening. like the children playing on the lawn, they just keep playing
Me
i have to say that you really did capture how you feel when cutting takes over your life. i really liked it. in a morbid way.
Sarah
WOW that poem is very very good. I completely agree with where you are coming from. I do the same thing to escape my pain.
Parth
yo. your poem is amazing
Gira

Greg
You have an amazing talent, keep writing. This poem makes me think about what i do, and hopefully will help me stop cutting. Simply put, this was one of the best poems i have ever read, you put to words what coutless people feel everyday, but cannot express
sarah

blah

Joel
Hey, Bec love your poem. That sounds like me. But Bec cutting cant really help you. It only drags me down deeper. Stay safe
Tarny
Self mutilation is an integral part of my life that I cannot escape despite all my attempts. your poem expresses how I feel. I see happiness but do not feel it.
Rich
This is a beautiful poem. I think I am one of the only guys to post that I have been there and done it. You can express what I feel through words I can never find. Thank you.

Sue
Bec your poem is quite moving. The imagery is strong and creates a mood of despair. It's caputured a feeling or emotion within me that I had yet to identify. Thank you for sharing this with us and I hope that you have moved through this dark period of your life.
Candace
Thanx for the poem. I like it allot. That's what I do when I'm mad and depressed. Thanx again, it's great. Yuo should write more.
TIFFANY
I RELATE TO THIS.

I USED TO FEEL THIS WAY. MY BF WAS SUICIDAL, I REALIZED WHAT I WAS DOING WAS JUST AS DUMB AS HIM TRYING TO KILL HIMSELF. NOW, I PROMISED HIM THAT I WOULD NEVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN.
