He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he gaze long into the abyss... only to find his own reflection.

Confessions of a Cutter (Self-Harm)

The first cut was lame. It is funny that I should use that term, "lame."

I hate "machismo" crap. I do NOT cut to be "macho" in any sense of the word. Fuck No.

I cut to scar which is to remind which is to remember...

A small cut will heal quickly and not leave a scar.

The first cut would not scar; the second would not either.

But the third...

Warm blood drips down my neck and immediately I feel relief!

It is just like a drug.

Writing Down the Pain
I'd like just once to fall asleep feeling good about myself. Just once. Drunken stupors do not count.
