Cutting Yourself


Who says that cutting yourself is emo? , cutting your self's insane?
Cutting yourself to me, is simply releasing the pain,
Releasing all of the anger, cutting is a way to cope,
When all faith is lost, cutting gives me hope,
When everything is broken, when I can't stop the tears,
The blade is always there, it's been my friend for years,
Pressing deeper and deeper, sinking into my skin,
Cutting is suicidal words, that I no longer can keep in,
Whispering 'do it now', just end all of your sorrow,
Express all of your anger, you can kill yourself tomorrow,
Who cares what they say? , cutting is anything but insane,
Cutting yourself to me, is simply releasing the pain,

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
