I Am A Razor

Published: March 2011

Everyday around quarter past three,
you burst into the bathroom searching for me,
I get hidden by your mother while you are away,
hidden, unused for most of the day,
I feel your anger as your hand grips me tight,
I'm the one & only thing that helps you sleep at night,
I live to put scars upon your wrist,
I leave my mark I'm proud of this,
I watch as the beautiful red blood pattern drips,
and runs off the ends of your fingertips,
what possesses humans to act like this,
to scream, cry & cut their wrists,
but for now my job is clear
the reason that I was brought here
to relieve the pain
to sit by the window and watch the rain,
up until around quarter past three
when you burst into the bathroom searching for me...

I do this a lot too. My life is not perfect, and I always hit so many bumps in the road. Sometimes I feel so stupid and dumb to be in my family. I have no friends and it hurts me. When people talk to me I feel as though they do it out of pity. Why must life be this way??

I am able to connect with this on a personal level. I go through the same things. If I told anyone what was going on they wouldn't understand they would send me away for being suicidal.

I cut because I get stressed. I know it's wrong but when I do it I kind of like how it feels. I don't do it on daily bases but once in a while do. I know people care about me but if talk to them they won't understand and all they would think is that I'm crazy and stupid. I have suicidal thoughts but I would never commit suicide. I know it always gets better and that's what keeps me going. No matter how things are please don't give up!!!

That's exactly why I do it, too. So much stress causes me to cut and take the pain and everything else away. You're not alone.

I've never cut myself. But I do like the poems put up here.

This is really good. You've got a lot of talent. And I hope that you've never had to deal with self harm, its not easy to get away from once you have. I speak from experience. And if you are dealing with it..nothing is worth someone's, as amazing and talented as you, tears and blood. There's a light after the dark. I promise

Reading through the comments on this inspirational piece make me feel as if I am not alone in what I am going through/have already been through. each one of us is beautiful, scars or not we each share our own inner power. I know it isn't much consolation although I hope reading over these comments (as I have) you realize that none of us are alone even if we are in body, we have to stick together and support each other. Without one another, isolated, we are nothing but alone although together we are people no different from any other of us, a family, a support network, we are united. Stay strong guys!

Hey. I really love this poem. It touched my heart deeper than I thought possible. I do cut, but I try not to. Please find me on Facebook. Ashleigh Rae. You are a great writer, and I would love to talk to you more.

This is one of the best poems I have ever seen. I once wrote a poem about a razor being a friend. It reminds me of that because it is showing the razor to have a place in someone's life.

I know how you feel. I'm a cutter and the pain of cutting, and the feel of that blood trickling down my hand makes me feel really good. My mom has taken away all my razors and I know where she's hidden them, but it's locked. I haven't cut in about a week or so, and I think it's getting easier.

I've been cutting for three almost four years now. I have tried to stop but it never lasts long. It's been getting worse. I wish I could stop but its super hard. The reason for most of my cuts are because of this guy who I guess I meant nothing too that all he wanted was to use me for my body.... I lost my virginity to him and now I wish I could take that back.

That's why I write poetry. It gets my feelings out in another way besides things like cutting and hitting people.

My parents divorced when I was 5. I have bitchy ass step mom. I been made fun my whole life. I have been raped ten times by one guy and it was gym teacher. I had 4 children with him. Because of him I lost my virginity when I 14 AND I'm 17 and I do cut myself.

I am a 14 year old girl and I too suffer from suicidal feelings, I have taken 3/4 overdoses and I have scars up my left arm, left wrist, my left hip and the front of my right hip, and most of the time, I know I'm going to do it again. I was diagnosed with the beginning of a personality disorder which no doctors seem too keen to help with, I'm on sleeping tablets because my body no longer sleeps. I participated in casual sex not caring about the consequences. I feel empty and like I'm already dead. I am bad ay school and feel as though everyone talks about me. My only friends is everything that harms me and most of the time I'm scared of these feelings. This poem is so inspirational, but no matter how good the scars may look, cutting is an illness inside itself and also may be part of a more serious illness. Doctors tell me, without treatment I will most likely die from suicide. Please anyone who gets any thoughts about killing themselves get help before it progresses, don't wait a year and a half like me.

The roses cry,
The crickets sing,
People lie,
Spirits take wing.

The sunset is red,
The deads tear is blue,
When I'm gone forever,
Who's going to look after you?

Babies grow up,
Corpses go down,
People get hurt,
Life goes round.

Well, you are here,
And I am not,
Do you still come here?
To my grave that's left to rot?

The moments of life,
That I've already lived,
Were not as bright,
As yours will soon become.

So live life to love,
To calm down the storm,
To see what's truly important,
And find out why you were born.

Do not live in fear,
Do not live in dread,
For I will always be with you, here;
In my heart, that's already dead.

I see them shoot up,
I see them fly by
I see them go back,
But only clouds come here to cry.

For that's the way,
We were laid to rest,
Eyes closed,
Hands on our chests.

Flowers galore,
On our big day,
Loads of crowds,
But nobody came to stay.

I watched them leave,
One by one,
None of them ever came back,
After the day was done.

The roses cried,
The crickets sang,
The girl that died,
Could never feel her heart break again...

I know how you feel. I'm a cutter too and I just can't find the will power to stop. I don't even have the courage to find help. My "friend" found out and now she barely talks to me. It just made it worse. I hate when she asks me why I did it.

  • Alicia by Alicia, Texas

I cut myself too, so I can relate to what you go through. You see my parents got divorced, but that's not what made me cut myself. They care about me but we don't have a very good relationship-we barely talk, we don't ever look at each other, and my mom tries to talk to me, but she doesn't understand what is important to me. I hope you don't let anyone tell you to stop what you are doing (unless you what to) because it is your life and if that's how you express yourself then tell them to F*** off!!!!!!!!!

I used to do the same thing.. and sometimes I catch my self cutting. I am now thirty three years old.. it's hard to get rid of bad habits even though it makes us feel better.. I have scared both my arms it bothers me sometimes when people stare.. I sure hope you get some help.. I cut myself bad to where I ended up hospitalized. So please get help.

I used to cut all the time because my parents were abusive, so I would cut because it made me feel like I had some kind of control over my life, one day my dad raped me and after he was done he just left me there, I picked up my razor and slit my wrists, if it wasn't for my brother I would be dead right now and I wouldn't have met my wonderful husband or had my beautiful daughter. Life's a bitch and at times it sucks and you feel like there's no help and that you're alone in this world. All I can say is that you're not. You just have to have the right people there for you like me, my brother and I got through that situation with the help of friends.
I hope those that are cutting, that they find friends that'll help them.

I wish I could stop cutting myself but my pain inside just makes me feel so worthless and despicable that I have to cut out my sorrows.
I hope I find the power to stop cutting and be happy but the scars will always be there, a constant reminder of my loneliness and suffering.
I hope you find the will to stop x

rubber band snapping is a pretty good substitute for cutting....

My Razor sometimes is my own friend, I can't help not cutting myself although sometimes I do try but, It's a substitute for the pain inside, Physical pain is what I sometimes need why I have no clue, But I've always acted this way and I only now know I'm Emo.... :(

I cried when I read this because I cut myself before and sometimes I still do but this poem shows why people do it they don't do it just to do it they do it because they have a hard life.

I know how hard it is. For I have been the victim in this. But I know things will get better, for it has for me.

I know how you feel because everynight when everyone in my house is asleep I pull out my razor and cut myself. I've tried to stop but it is really hard

  • Brittany by Brittany, California

Hey, I love your poem, its great. I hope you can find will power to stop cutting. I know its hard, believe me I've tried, I still struggle trying to stop. Even after a huge accident. I just hope you can try to stop, it wont be easy, but what is?

  • Sabrina by Sabrina, Minnesota

This is a great poem! I hope you have not first hand experienced cutting but if you have please don't harm yourself. No matter how bad things are, they will get better :) I've had some hard times myself but it does get better I've learned :) I know this was for a school assignment..but it's got to come from somewhere...so if it does relate to you in anyway, hang in there :)
