  1. Amnesia

    She kept it close, Safe in her dark Each little mark Spoke when it arose As she went on by day Nothing was the same As if under a new name She has gone astray Forgetting her lines As she laughed and breathed Her shirts always long-sleeved Underneath grows vines They extend down her thighs Though she walks with grace A smile on her face Laced with lies Cause as night she roams again With her sweet little razor blade Renewing those that fade Another shot of anesthesia
  2. Not so new

    Hey guys! My name is Miranda. I am 18. I'm new to this website, but not to the topic. I struggled with self-harm for 5 years, and then i was clean for a year and a half. I don't know how or why, but I fell into the black hole again about a month ago... I'm just here to look for help...

  4. broken

    I am so broken and alone. I have completely relapsed in my Self Harm. I told a friend and she talked me through it but she lives so far away. I don't want to do this anymore. I don't want to disappoint my mom and daddy anymore. I am nothing but a disgusting, worthless, failure and I don't want to do this anymore. I don't want to go through life worring about ever little detail. I want to get better. I just don't know how.
  5. Broken

    A while back my English teacher made us write poems and at one in the morning the night before they were due i wrote about the only thing on my mind… my precious blade. I remember writing about how the blade can’t control me anymore. I remember writing about how I’m worth more than a stupid piece of metal, but now 3 month later i find myself with the blade in my hand almost every night. The thing is the blade is the only thing I have at 2 am where all I wanna do is cry. I’m sick of needing the blade but if the blade whats keeping me alive then the blade is gonna be my best friend for a while I guess
  6. A broken girl

    i’m a broken girl. People see my smile, they think im happy. That smile was made from my self destruction. I cry out for a savior every single day. But people can”t see the hurt behind my eyes. I want to stop these thoughts, I just wish I could feel pretty, or at leat feel happy. What does happineness even feel like, I can’t remember. Does it pour into your body like carbon monoxide? I woudn’t know but I bet the feeling is to die for. My head is filled with so many thought, None of them being good. You see i’m just that broken girl no body wants to be friends with. The wierd girl that has scars all over her arms and legs. You know that feeling where you are just so overwelmed with life that you can hardly breath. I wish I could feel something other than that. I jusy want, well I don’t even know. I just want to be happy. I want to smile a real smile, and learn how to truly laugh again. But i can’t do that, not with these thoughts and scars They haunt me where I go I always feel like people are going to judge me, like they always have I’m just scared, I don’t know why Hell I don’t even know what i’m scared of. Myself maybe…. I’m scared of what i might do. Or what i’m capable of. I don’t even have control of myself anymore. I just want to be normal.
  7. lyrics Quote from Broken by Tracy Chapman

    When your life is never what you wanted Not even halfway normal Just tarnished and soiled When in your reach A framed and frozen moment So far from perfection Not truth or transcendence Will set you free Still you don’t believe.
