Description: I'm kinda just hoping to vent, this poem has.. personal meaning for me, so I guess just drop a line about whether you liked it? A background, hmmm... well, one could say that I'm writing this to keep myself from DOING this.*sigh* This just to vent i suppose. Well, enjoy, maybe leave a comment on your opinion...
Worries, cares, concerns,
all flow out,
out and away
slowly guilt sets in
The thought of friends, worried, wondering why
Of familiar voices, hurt and afraid
a promise broken
fleeting moments of freedom?
Unburdened by the chains of life
a swath of red
a razor hits the floor
despair sinks in again
is it worth it?
for just a taste?
a taste of sweet release?
i understand and can relate to that. you talked about the guilt and despair that many people feel. i read your backround though and if you ever need to vent...im around with an ear to listen. i was a big time cutter until i realized how much it actually did hurt the people i love. but it took along time to stop...cutting is addicting but the anwser to your question, no its not worth it. xoxoxomuchlove-ash
Wow, very nice write. Im sure all of us have felt this at least a little before.. like "am I being selfish to just get this pain out.. but what about everyone else.. et cetera" I think that you conveyed the guilt of cutting really well. Nice descriptions! Amber
