Cutting to Release


Alone in my room
Feeling every emotion possible
Not knowing what to do
The emotional pain keeps building
I find the scissors and i slowly slide it across my skin
I feel the hurt start to release
I slide it again wanting to go deeper
As I slice my skin over and over the overwhelming feelings start to disappear
I take a deep breath and I can begin to relax
Feeling better I can now enter a better place
It is off to dreams of wonderful things

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
