    I Self-injure.

    I cut my wrists, I just like to bleed is all. I don't cut deep, I just slice through the skin and that is enough for me. It's stupid but it's not really a major problem as long as I keep just slicing the skin ad don't start hacking my self apart.

    The blood drips; I merely sigh With a fiendish laugh, and a gleam in my eye I find myself absorbed in a joy unexlpained And yet with an phsycopathic smile all may well be explained I find pleasure in my pain There seems to be a deficiency with my own brain As I find myself...
