Sweet little friend,
You are the only one that
Truly understands me.

The only one that
Holds my hand
When I am
Breaking.

The one that listens
When I am upset.
The only one that
Hears me crying.
The one that counsels
Me how to cope with life.

And you're hungry
For more blood.

You are jumping and
Screaming
Ready to be fed.

You love the softness of
My skin, and you promise to
Be gentle when you break
Through the vein.
But you're not strong enough.
You aren't sharp and bold
Like the others.

You're such a frail creature
And now it's your turn
To be disposed.

In the trash,
Where you always belonged.
Letting go of cutting addiction.

This is great... It's such a relief that the addiction has come to an end! Hopefully, this will drive others into doing the same, as well it should because it is an amazing piece..
Please feel free to take a look at my poetry; they r all emotional too

This starts off feeling as if it's going to be another typical 'cutting' poem, but your ending is surprising a great and shows a lot of courage and strength.

This is a really nice poem. It's got a nice chance of emotion to it.
I wish you the best of luck, I don't think I'm able to do what you're doing.

The strength you build with the words is quite nice. To quit any addiction, self harm or both is such a strong and courageous thing to do, so I really loved the topic. The flow of words were stuttered which gave it that sort of feeling of wanting to cut but trying to break away, and I thought that was a nice touch. All in all, I very nice piece, even though it is about something not so nice. :)

Thanks you. That is the main idea. That thouch cutting is a terrible addiction, it is important for people to know the depth of internal pain behind it.

Dark poem, Sensitive topic, Vivid imagery, the components to a really good piece of writing. Well done.
