Sharp Pain
Author: Mere


I feel like I'm dying,
I wish I could be crying,
There's no way to say this,
I felt it with the first kiss.

My knife kissed me,
Almost like it missed me,
It left a red mess,
That's easy to guess.

Scars are great,
They show my hate,
This is part of my fate,
It's not a debate.

I love watching the blood fall from my arm,
I love that feeling, of sweet subtle harm,
I hide it with sweatshirts,
It never really does hurt.

I love the pain,
I know it's my main,
I need something sharp,
Something like the strings from a harp.

This is real

It's real, I only write it because I can't talk to anyone about it, no one understands.

I have no clue

i don't know how bad cutting is but my best friend does and it is really addicting. im really trying to help getting her to stop. i would never do it because im sharing my friends pains by her doing it to herself.
