She tries to hide the cuts
She tries to hide her feelings
So many things to hide
From so many people

In a crowd she feels alone
She feels worthless in the world
So many feelings she doesn't understand
So many feelings she doesn't want to feel

When she cuts herself it's the pain she understands
As she watches the blood flow from her body
The feelings she gets she understands
She understands the numbness and the nothingness

She doesn't want to try to understand anything anymore
She just wants it to live without this feelings
She sits in the darkness trying to decide
Trying to decide so many things

The knife in her hand
She looks in the mirror
A single tear rolls down her cheek
She decides to make two final cuts

As they lower her coffin
They try to understand why she did this
Why she had to do this to herself
They don't understand, no one could have understood

I'm glad you have found a way to express your inner feelings to the world. Keep writing and maybe some time you might try talking to a close friend about this. *nudge *nudge
