This is a different type of poem; not exactly about cutting but of the emotions.

If everyone had cared.

I wouldn't have had these scars.

But then these stitches never would have come.

And then they never would have been healed.

If everyone had cared.

I wouldn't have these tears.

But then those feelings never would have washed over me.

And I never would have begun to cut.

If everyone cared.

I wouldn't be so lonely.

But then I never would have had my heart ripped open.

And I never would have felt the pain.

If everyone cared.

I wouldn't have those silent days.

But then I never would have spoken out.

And I never would have people ignore me.

If everyone cared.

I wouldn't have this blade.

But then I never would have felt relief.

And felt the emotions glide away in one slash.

If everyone cared.

I never would have started to cut.

But then I never would have had this emotional crisis.

And I never would have known what it felt like to truly be alone.

If everyone cared.

I wouldn't have needed those stitches in the first place.

But then I never would have had to feel that horrible guilt rise inside of me.

And I never would have thought about apologizing.

If everyone cared.

I never would have had to write this poem.

But then I never would have gotten out my feelings.

And I would still be cutting myself with that sharp blade.

If everyone cared.

What a lonely doubt.

If everyone cared.

My life would have been different.
