Cuts & Scars

Cuts & Scars

A Poem by CriticalxxAngel

I told myself I would only try it once

That I didn't need it

But I lied

To myself and to my body

I stopped for a while

When I though all was perfect

It didn't last

I found myself craving that wound

Wanted the pain it would bring

It would help me forget

About the mess my life is

Help me realize

That I am numb

I told myself I would quit

That I would never do it again

That was a couple years ago

I don't need help

But I still give myself cuts

To cover the old ones

When I look in the mirror

I see who I am

Just cuts and scars
