    I Do

    When I bottom out, I do cut myself. Its a high the feeling I get when the blade slides across my skin and the beautiful bright red blood comes gushing down my skin. For a brief moment, I know something beautiful can come from me.

    Only a Couple Times

    I don't do it a lot. I've only done it a couple times, when the shame and anger against myself boiled over. I do it mostly with my fingernails, but I've also done it with a broken bowl, a razor blade, and a pocket knife. It helped me deal with my pain, and it was a way of...

    I do it just a couple of times .

    I'm not sure why I do it but it makes me feel whole . Sometimes the cuts leave scars and everyday I look at those scars to show just how alone I feel .
