My arm, burning for a blade,
Because of the feelings that just won't fade,
I try to say, "Go away!"
Instead they just replay.

The blades are sitting in front of me,
My hand is shaking, fighting the need,
I pick up a blade, to complete the deed,
The blade flies across my anatomy.

My arms are bleeding, my heart is torn,
My legs are cut, my feelings worn,
The time right now, I feel reborn,
Until tomorrow, when I'll be scorned...
This is a rather personal poem that I have written.. It kinda goes through my thoughts, actions, and feelings whenever I go to cut, and sometimes succeed in doing so.

(P.S. For my watchers, this is my 100th deviation.)

As a former cutter I can relate and am glad I finally broke the cycle but this brings back so many memories.

Yeah... :/ It's just something I go through everytime I cut. Almost like a process that needs steps.
