Hey. i love all your poems, your an amazing writer. this one is one of my favorite because i know so many people who do this its not funny. and its so annoying. because they have no clue what real pain is!!!
Not all people cut for attention. So this poem isnt at all true. Some people cut to just know that theyre alive. Others cut to relieve mental stress/tension and sometimes they do it just to forget about the hurt on the inside. It's not always an act. Maybe if you didnt act so shallow and stereotype all cutters then you'd understand. Yet, you've probably never cut and never been in a situation that caused you to cut, so really you probably have no idea what goes on in a cutters mind.
I am so scared that I am the kind that cut for attention. I mean I hide my scars and all but sometimes I get this urge to show someone so they know what I am going through. Anyway I just wanted to tell it's not always black or white...
Hey girl, well first off i loved this poem, cuz i kno ppl who do cut for attention, i never did...sometimes i wanted ppl to see them jus so they could help but i was sooo scared to even let someone see, i always covered up and if someone saw i would blame it on my cat...or sum stupid s-hit like that... i think Dysphoria needs to back off you. becz your not doin this to say all cutters cut for attention. anyway great poem, -hugs-hayley
I get your poem. Cutting for attention really pisses me off because their lives so so freaking great and they just want to act a certain way. They've never really tried to take their life, and don't really want to die. I know some poeple like that and it really bugs me so I agree with this poem 100% and yeah, I am a cutter too.
I have been in the same place as you. I am a cutter and my best friend is too but she cuts for the attention unlike me and you. thanks for the poem, it should help others like us deal with the people out there who think its all just "cool". they don't know how bad iot really is and how uncool it is. they don't know that we hide the scars so people don't see because all they do is show them off. Thanks for the poem I think it's one of the best I've read so far, then again I don't think I've read any of your others. I'm putting you on my fav. list.
loves and hugs Heather Prior
Im sorry but im going to have to disagree intirly and say people who cut do it for one reason and one reason only..they just dont know how to control their emotions so they turn to something else that only hurts even more..i used to be a cutter myself and i am proud to say i no longer am and i hope you come to a realization and you too stop cutting
I normally wouldn't read this since I don't like it when people cut themselves cause it does absolutly no good....but this really got my attention...i've known some people who do it purely for attention...they were stupid...but regardless great way of putting it in words and well thats it...lataz
Describes my one friend perfectly. she's always in a contest to have the worst life. trying to convince me that everything has and will always go wrong, when really i've known her forever and know that nothing in her life is that bad. if i showed her the poem, she'd just say she knows people like that. question- how do you get them to stop and realize its not so bad? i love her to death, but i really cant take it. if she really had a problem with depression, i would be the first one to be there for her, so dont get me wrong. anyways. sorry for rambling. its truely an amazing poem. great work. keep writing.
