    I Hurt Myself...



    I hurt myself… they say it is a cry for help,
    But really it’s just a stab at the darkness within.​


    I hurt myself… they say it is attention I seek,
    But I hide it, I want only solace and peace.​


    I hurt myself… they think I need something more in my life,
    But in reality it is so much less that I crave.​


    I hurt myself… they want me to tell them why,
    But for now I stay silent and embrace the other answer.​


    I hurt myself… you would think me impervious to pain,
    But since pain is all I know, I am just choosing the lesser evil.​


    I hurt myself… they think my mind uncontrolled or insane,
    But when pain is the focus, my mind is free to heal.​


    I hurt myself… they don’t understand why I would hurt myself,
    But they should be asking what else inside me is worse.​


    I hurt myself… they think I want to kill myself,
    But it’s personal and private; it’s only a silent scream.​


    I hurt myself, for myself,
    not for their eyes to see…
    not for their lips to question…
    not for them at all.​


    I hurt myself to remember that I am still alive, for now…
    They are too late;
    I was already wounded before,
    and those wounds will never heal...​

    So sad and I completely get it.

    Those wounds you talk about may heal, there is always hope, never say never... :hug:
