It started so many years ago.
A little problem that proceeded to grow,
How big it would get, no one could know.
But if they had, it could have helped so.

She grasped the blade, it touched her skin;
This is where the saga did begin.
She cut herself to remove her sin,
The evil poured out as the steel went in.

She soon realized that each cut brought release
It brought her harmony, brought her peace.
It was a welcome feeling, how could she cease?
The amount of cutting began to increase.

It was a vicious cycle of blood and pain
She'd cut one day, then try to abstain.
You can't understand, because it's hard to explain;
But if she didn't cut she'd become insane.

She kept on cutting she couldn't stop;
Once you've picked up a blade it's hard to drop.
She knew one day her veins would pop,
But all she ever wanted was to be on top.

So she kept on going, she cut more and more.
She felt her anguish melt each time her skin tore.
When she couldn't breathe and she hurt to the core,
It relieved her to see her blood drip to the floor.

So thats the story, and it seems over, but
The story is in a book that will never shut.
Because you see, after that first cut
She was addicted for life, she's a Razor Slut.

She'll do anything to get her hands on a blade.
Some she's stolen, and for some she paid.
It's because as she looks at the scars she's made,
She makes new cuts for each one that fades.

She can't stop cutting, she lives for the rush:
The loudness before, afterwards the hush.
It's like with Death she's had a brush
Each time she cuts and sees the blood rush.

She parts her skin like it's the Red Sea.
Once it's out of the way her blood is free,
And once she cuts her pain can flee...
It's all as simple as A-B-C.

Maybe it's more simple for her than for you
Because she's done things you never had to do,
She knows things of which you have no clue.
Being a Razor Slut is how she gets through.

Often she thinks she'd be better off dead,
But cutting removes that thought from her head.
She calms down as her skin she shreds,
And the world looks much better after she's bled.

She's a Razor Slut, and it keeps her whole.
Kills her body, but liberates her soul.
I'm a Razor Slut... here's my story

It's a such a battle that is unknown to so many! Thank you so much for putting into words that which few can express. It's not the most pleasant of topics... but you just wrote it so beautifully and wonderfully. I can't thank you enough!

Respect for ya, it's a great poem. ^^ I was never really one. I used to scratch with scissors, because I could never commit to anything, even if my reason was (a bit) my inability to commit and such. Ironic, eh? ^^" Well, anyway, this was a really good poem...

I think is the best thing I've ever read on the topic of self-harm. You did a very good job. Nice steady flow, smooth rhyme. Favorite for sure. Definitely relate to this 100%.

I can relate completely - I've managed t stop for over over two years, but everytime something goes wrong in life, the urge is there.

This was very well written, both from an emotive and narrative point.
