By Draco Malfoy,
before, i am always very emotionally clogged. i dont cut unless i have to. i write off all my feelings or i talk them out. but if there are no words, no tears for the pain im feeling…i cut to feel the pain in a different way and to get rid of the fog over my mind. usually the pain during the cutting will make me cry the tears i had wanted to cry but couldn’t, then comes the emotions through the tears and things feel much better.
