Cutting Deep

Cutting deep
Letting the problems pour out
I fall in a heap
Staining the carpet, mother will shout

The deeper the knife
More problems escape
The better my life
This life I hate

Nobody knows
Why would they care
I let the marks show
Expose them to the air

I live my life
From day to day
Just me and my knife
No one else ever stays

  I can defenitly relate. It amazes me that i can find so many articles on cutting here, i dont think ive been anywhere else where people can openly express themselves and not be ashamed of their outlet. Self mutilation isnt hid in some dark corner, you and many others have brought it into the open. Thank you for this poem.

  I have a friend that cuts, and I've never really understood why... this poem really helps to get a feel for why cutting would seem to ease life's travails. I suppose it's not much different than other self destructive outlets for such pain... overeating, promiscuity, drugs, etc. Thanks for the enlightenment.

  I can relate a LOT...though the rhyming in the 2nd stanza is a bit sketchy ...Overall, very powerful and wonderful imagery. Very nice!

  I can relate, I actually have a poem quite similar to this one. Watching the liquid slowly flow away seems to help take the pain away. After a while you are numb to the bite of the blade. Very good write. I hope you start writing again, you have talent, and It helps with the pain as well, I have noticed. Bonnie

  I can relate :) Hahah. I like this poem, it sort of just gets straight to the point, which makes it easier to read and understand. ^.> Some people take so frickin long to get to their point. I'm a cutter too, so yeth, I had to read this poem of yours. It's pretty good. You've got potential, so keep it up, hun :)
