    three cuts
    swish, swipe, run
    the metal cuts soft flesh
    oh blessed relief!
    my sickest fantasy
    bliss for a moment

    the times I've held it to me
    needing only a little push
    to make a little bite
    I've stopped
    afraid, ashamed, enraged
    for myself, by myself, at myself

    but not anymore
    I hope, may be a hopeless dream
    I broke down last night
    light dropes of tears
    covering endless fright
    but I survived that fight
    flesh uncut
    cutting as a though
    not begging for a cut
    however small
    oh blessed relief!

    I hope writing out your experience has given you some clarity but sometimes it does and sometimes it only leaves us with more questions. You seem to be conveying a sense of conflict and that would seem to be a good thing to me. The questioning of why is a huge first step for me so I guess the question in my mind would be what was changed...what was different about this time that resulted in cutting versus the many other times you did not cut.
    Love ya B
