    Knife

    I cut. My arms and my wrists. Blood running down my arms. I feel I deserve all the pain. I've cut since 3rd Grade. When I take the blade, it runs through my skin, losing blood. I have been to the hospital twice for blood loss... Cutting eases the pain

    This is beginning to feel like my diary.

    I write in my diary in moments exactly like this when I want to take the scissors and cut my wrist until the pain goes away. Moments that I want to cry of frustration because my family doesn't take the time to get to know me. I'm ******* angry with everyone. I want to scream at...
