This is my attempt at free verse. I had been reading Ellen Hopkins, and was feeling inspired. From the point of view of someone who cuts his/her self. And (as you may or may not gather from the information given) his/her family finds out.

It's the

apathy

that makes me

return

to the

blade.

But the blade does

relieve.

I

cut to

feel.

I feel

only

the blade sliding, the blood

flowing, the 

pain.

Why Lie?

This

wasn't an

accident.

But that's what

hurts

them 

most.

Not that

I meant for this to happen.

I

don't

need

all of

this

negative

attention.
