You can't stop you know

It's addicting

You think you could if you tried

But once you start

It's impossible

To stop

You cut once

Just once

To stop the pain

To make you feel

It's like heroin

A drug

An urge you can't deny

After you do it once

You want nothing more than to do it again

Your Dad hit you

And again

You failed a test

And again

Got in a fight with your friend

And again

You just can't stop

Then every time you hurt

You want the pain

Every time you see

Something even remotely sharp

You wonder

How deep would it go?

How much would it hurt?

How good would it feel?

And suddenly everything

Looks so sharp

And you want it

So much more

The drug

To get your fix

You can never stop
