'Cutting'

Posted , 2 users are following.

Do you sit alone feeling scared and afraid? 

Do you stop and reach for the nearest blade?

Do you cut to release the tension? 

Are your thoughts full of frustration? 

Are you like me or am I just dumb? 

Is it just me who's minds constantly numb? 

Please tell me that I'm normal 

Please tell me that it's okay 

Am I the only one that can't keep my feelings at bay? 

One minute I'm fine one minute life makes sense, the next I make these cuts at my minds expense! 

I wish I could stop I wish I knew how 

Wish someone could relate to the way Im feeling now 

Slit my arm to watch it bleed 

It's not something that I want, it's something that I need 

To feel the pain to see the blood spill

Anything to stop the way That I feel

Oh god this is stupid I don't need you to tell 

I know I should stop but wish I knew how 

I just want someone to relate, want someone to see, to tell me that I'm normal and there's nothing wrong with me

The truth is I don't want to do this to myself!

The truth is Im just crying out for help!

    So tell your story

    However it is 

    Thus you can be heard 

    And behold the dawning

    A new day is done 

    And old wounds be healed 

    If only in this moment 

    Are you at one

    Hi dondons, I can sympathize with you very much, I know how hard it is to release feelings of sheer hopelessness, many years ago I was a self harmer and alcoholic, I was lucky in a strange kind of way that I was sectioned four times... I also have to live with the guilt that my precious daughter was a serious cutter from the age of fifteen years.....I foundsmashing things very helpful, until we ran out of glasses !! But please,Please believe me you can ( and will ) find a way to recover from this....

    You must...make your doctor understand how serious your situation is,he has or she have a duty of care towards you, and will want to help all. They can....

    You can also phone MIND or the SAMARITANS at any time just to talk to. When you need help, advice or simply reassurance,,,,, do not give up, it. May take many attempts, but you really will get there.... you will be in my

    Thoughts and prayers, wishing you well, take care... Deirdre anne x
