I cut because
it's the only pain
i can control.
i wish i could just stop
and do it no more.

I've only done it
a few times
but that's enough.
but i'm addicted.
It's how i get
my high.
i don't do it
'cause i wanna die.

It's a drug.
addicting.
and fun.
so what,
if it could draw blood?

I use a very dull knife
so it's not painless, bloody and fast
but instead takes more time,
more pressure,
and longer the pain will last.

It lets me take my anger out
on myself
instead of hurting others
and lashing out.
it saves my tears,
and screams and shouts.

I know it's harmful,
leaves scars,
and shouldn't be fun
but i'm addicted.
so i may not keep
my promise
to be done.
