Trigger warning: self harm


I need to feel pain

To remind myself

That I'm alive

And not dead inside.

Because living is to be loved.

I need to feel pain

To remind myself

That I'm not some freak or some alien,

To accept myself.

To escape the dark corners of my mind

Because otherwise I'm just a walking shell

Distant from the world

A pariah.

But I need to feel pain

So that I can feel alive

Because I need to feel human.
