cutting and the "cutter's" paradox is too little known and too little talked about ..bringing things to the light of others observations and opinions is medicine all our foibles need to take ... i applaud the gut honesty of this and all your writes Lily .. thank you for sharing your poetry

Contrasting struggle of pain. This is a dark and bleak poem to read but it comes from your heart so at least you're honest with it

The simplicity is exquisite... the pain obvious and the hope exists in this poem. Do any of us really know who we are or why we write/do what we do? I for one have no idea. You express the truth of a reality in a few short lines. Well done, yet again!

You're welcome. Check out the poem stay, you inspired it. (((hugs)))
Pain streams through your poem, first to last line. The reader is left empty, but with a greater understanding, perhaps. The numbness is gone with each cut, pulling you back into life's realities, but then the pain intensifies, and you're reminded why you live in darkness. It's a vicious cycle, perpetual carousel, spinning in the dark, so fast everything is a blur. You can't stop it or seeing what's happening around you. So, this is what I get from your poem. Art in eight short lines.

Short but powerful, and the repetition spells perfection. Well done!
