By Draco Malfoy,
I really don’t know how to answer this, but I’ll try. I am in so much emotional and physical pain. I’ve never been very social, because we moved around a lot, and so I would and still do purposely make myself the outcast so I’ll have no friends to leave. I am raped. My mother and step-father hit me. I feel like there is a black core on the inside of me. All my pain has been stuffed down into the raging inferno of the dark abyss that is my soul. I can’t take the pain. y physical pain helps me deal with, control, and handle my emotional pain. It gives me a way to release all the pressures and tensions I have in my life. A way to get rid of all my feelings of rage and helplessness and everything else.
