To punish you,
Or to punish me?
I'm not so sure anymore.
They said there's one reason.
When I'm upset.
When I feel hollow.
When I want to punish someone else.
Can't be all?
Can't I do it because I feel like I'm empty, no emotions at all?
And then the next day because I want to forget feeling angry? To escape my emotions?
I forget the reason the second that blade touches my skin.
Because I don't want to remember it.
I don't need to remember it.
I just know that it's gone.
And for a little while,
I can be happy again.
A poem touching on the subject of self harm.
