Why-(Cutting) - Poem by Scarlet .....

why is it cut after cut
I grow calmer
cut after cut
my mind becomes peaceful
cut after cut I want more
I want to go deeper
for with each cut
part of the rage and anger
melts away
it flows out with the blood
cut by cut
I am slowly set free
free from the beast within
for it satisfies it
a little but it still wants more
and I no longer want to fight

    its nice to have a way to somehow release what we feel inside.. but the more that we hold on to that thing, that more that we're getting satisfied, the more that we're drowned to it.. dont hold back.. just keep on writing.. (Report) Reply
