Cut

Cut

A Poem by Heather

A cut,

On my fourth finger

I barely even noticed it.

 

Then, the blood was oozing out

And yet it was though I was an outsider looking in.

I should be feeling some sort of pain, without a doubt

Maybe feeling nothing, shouldn’t have felt like such a win.

 

I’m hurt, yet I feel nothing.

I see it, but it seems like a distanced dream that I can’t quite remember.

Like there’s something I forgot to do,

Yet as I sit here and wonder

I question what it takes;

 

What it takes to feel

What it takes to hurt

Because maybe I have been fooling myself all along, all this time

Maybe I really am, “fine”.

Oh, this one is awesome. Way up there on another level, far from any usual teenage emo poem about cutting and being in love with your own blood (of which I may have written a few myself, cough cough). But no, this actually has a lot of thought put into it, and makes the reader think.
One small cut, belatedly noticed, and suddenly all is called into question. I love it.

" I can’t quite remember.

Those cuts can be deep. That wondering might be puzzling. That distancing might be vast. Excellent...:)..............
