I Cut My Wrist, It Makes The Pain Go Away

    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

    Pain

    Sometimes the pain inside is too much compared to the pain you feel outside so you have to even it out.

    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...
