By Draco Malfoy,
if im feeling very pent up and frustrated, like im going to explode or scream i tend to cut. i like the feeling of taking it out on my body and the actual feeling of something physically leaving me (the blood). Other times, i dont feel pent up at all, i just feel dead and deeply sad. it’s those cases when i will brand myself with hot metal. I hold it against my skin and for that time there is just nothing in my world at all except for that intense pain. it just washes everything else away. and then… if i can press it there long enough, it kind of breaks through and it doesnt hurt anymore. then there’s just nothing. nothing at all, and its blissful.
