Little Cuts (2011)

One cut for Dauntless,

One cut for Endymion,

One cut because one killed the other.

One cut for my mother,

Because even though I don't want to,

I'm hurting her too...

One cut for me,

Who needed freedom so desperately,

One cut for my brother,

Because I just had to get away;

Two more cuts, because in doing so,

I left him behind,

And hurt him to...

Five cuts for you,

Because you swept me away,

Because I loved you,

-Still love you...

Add on three more cuts,

Because I dared to think,

That you could love me too...

Three more cuts,

Because you influence me,

And you anger me...

Five more cuts because I let you,

Because I love you even so...

All these little cuts keep adding up,

I've got some for every occasion,

-Like a favorite bit of ribbon,

I wear them like a garish decoration...

Add one more cut,

Just for good measure...

Little cuts on my arm,

Sleep pulls at me now...

All these little cuts,

Even though they bleed real nice;

These self inflicted cuts,

Aren't really doing it for me;

And they aren't really all that deep,

After all...

Emo, angsty gothic love stories, mostly some kind of poetry. A passion I didn't know I had until I was about 21. Something that I have been doing mostly consistently ever since. My pen name is Belasrose, my online name is Caerid Lock.

Synopsis
Like. For reals, I tried cutting myself only once in my life, and it did nothing for me, I just sat there wondering when it would become amazing. (It didn't, so I got a band-aid, and that was the end of that.) -I just like writing about it, because in my mind it makes for some dark and pretty poetry... Don't cut yourselves kids, it's legit super overrated and dumb.
