I Cut


I know it's wrong;
It's shameful for me to do -
But I cut.
When I'm sad,
and the only thing people tell me is 'Get over it'
I cut.
When the words people do and don't say murder the life I live;
I cut.
I cut when I have no other choice.
When I can't take the pain, but I'm too cowardice to end it all together.. I cut.
I cut because I still have hope that someday it will be better,
I cut as an alternative.
I cut.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
