Wave Of Mutilation

I press my forehead on the window
And through it watch children
Playing on the lawn

Desolation pulses through my veins
And my futile fingers reach out for guidance
I savor the blade, sinking deeper than blue

I can taste tranquility for a wavering instance
The anger flows down my arm as the bitter black blood
Burns off my fingertips

Death swims before me in hazy illusion
Images of eternity skip shamelessly through my mind
Pain surrounds, I am resolved to be - still

I run my hand on the tear stained window
And distorted through it
Watch children playing on the lawn.

I love this poem, It's exactly how i feel sometimes. I relate to it.
This poem touched my very soul because I can understand it completely. I'm glad that I can relate to others who have had similar experiences but if I had the choice and so did others I'm sure they would have preferred to not go through that type of agony. Thankyou for writing this poem and sending it to this website so that others can see it and know that they aren't alone.
I love this poem cuz it relates to me alot . it's good to know im not alone. It's really deep and touching. i can feel your pain.
young children seen playin thru a window while slicin ur wrists is exactly wat self mutilators feel like inside they feel like they will always be the child or person locked away and will never be able to play again. this poem shows exactly who i was and who many other ppl were and are.
your poem is deep. i love it. it remindsme a lot of myself. cool.

I loved your poem. Many others probably say this but your poem touched my soul. I loved the expression and how it is exactly how i feel and what i used to do this poem helps ease the pain i knowing that others do it to. thanks ash
This poem was pretty damn awesome. I know how it is to cut and I know the feeling that you have to just let go. But you put it into words so much better than I will ever be able to. I LOVED IT! -Sam
i have made so many friend that cut themselves and i am scared to death that something might go wrong! this poem has made them really relize alot of stuff! i thank you for writing this poem
this poem is really deep. i like it
Though some may think this is a little overboard. I like it a lot b/c it's how I write as well. Not everyone will understand your metaphors and hidden links. but I think we're on the same page. Keep your chin up and keep expressing yourself through poetry. Sometimes this is the only way to keep your hopes alive. Peace
Beautiful. Beautiful, you have absolutely entranced me. It makes me feel understood in my world of loneliness.
I loved this poem, it was a real vivid and strong poem, i loved it
I think that this was one of the best poems i have had the privellege to read. It almost perfectly describes my encounter with selfmutalation. It was very descriptive and dark. Beautiful poem.
i also used to use blades to ease pain. but one day when things were really bad, i promised my mother i wouldn't hurt myself. i suggest that you promise to someone you won't do this, it helps knowing someone cares. remember, it is a choice. hope this helps
Dude. Wow. it is so like what i think about doing its like. Wow. The pain we all share!
I see myself in the poem. Great wording. *claps softly*
wow i feel so bad. that is really sad. mabey you should write other poems, such as this one. every time yu want to do this. That way instead of soing it you write about what you would do. Use you gift as a writer to benefit you emotionally.
very nice poem. 'live life with ease. take it ez =)'
wow. umm yeah that was really touching. it makes me think really deep about everything that goes on in my life and how i feel exactly like the girl in the poem, every day :/ Really amazing job
Hey. i used to have a probelem like that to when i was much younger. i totally understand what yur goin through. we all expericence pain in diffrent wayz but sometimes deal wth it the same way
This was just lovely, definitely keep writing and sharing it with all of us.
i just wanted to say that you poem rilly touched me!
this poem was absolutely wonderful. i mean i could really understand how you felt. i wish my poetry was more like that
Gee, it's great ! No, it's better than great. So sad lah, and so like me.
Oh, boy. Strong meaning. I love it! It's touching.
I'm glad to kno that there are other people who understand what i went thru b4. My parents thought i was crazy when they seen the cuts and scars on my legs that were self-inflicted. because i was depressed and felt everything going wrong was my fault. I can totally relate to this poem and its really sad. i hope everything gets better for u and u find a way out
