    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.

    1 Cut, 2 Cut, 3 Cut, Etc.

    I started cutting myself at the very end of my senior year of college. I learned from a friend. I remember the EXACT day I cut myself. I was sick of the world, sick of school, sick of people. So I cut myself, right before our choir concert. No one knew. No one knew for quite a...

    I Cannot Write But I Commit This To My One True Master, To Whom I Attempt To Please.

    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...
