I Feel My Cuts Poem by Zywa Zywa

I Feel My Cuts

Rating: 5.0


They say I live in a fantasy
they say I need to see my doctor
they say I am troubled

.....Some of them don't like me
.....and I don't like me
.....being that girl

.....who hates to look in the mirror
.....but dresses up to catch your eye
.....who is never afraid

.....to make statements
.....to be stubborn, just
.....to be frank, longing

.....to be submissive
.....and to gain the carnal
.....pleasure of my body

.....Yet I'm drowning
.....while waiting for help -
.....it is arranged for next year

They say I lie to myself
they say I am different
than I feel, and I feel

my cuts

ONGRATULATIONS that you have been chosen as The Member Poem Of The Day. Hurray! I'm really happy for you that you are chosen, Zywa Zywa.

Maybe you received a reply from me yesterday, but I think there was a failure with PoemHunter, so I'll give my answer once more. I wrote the poem for Siera, it is about her life. She writes poems about her life and her fantasies, but I had to express too the situation in which she is now. My poem is also a tribute to her and the way in which she keeps going. Dear Sylvia Frances, thanks for your interest.

There is nothing wrong with taking medicine that elevates ones mood if this is troubling you? ? I do it and for this reason I am much happier. Amazing poem!

Every body is unique and there is no need to conform to the standards set by others.If we try that we will always feel deficient and indulge in self loathing. It is good that you express your pains and bruises through a poem and you surely are a different person, unique and above mark.Congratulations for being selected as the Poet of the Day
