I need to hurt myself... No, you don't.
I did this... I need to hurt myself for it.
It won't go away if you do, you know it won't.
But everything in life has its consequence...

Maybe if I hurt myself, then I won't have to feel them,
Maybe it'll be consequence enough, if I'm hurt then.
Maybe she won't dump me for what I did too,
Maybe it'll be consequence enough for what I did to you.

I don't get why you're worried though...
But I dream the future, read my poetry, sometimes, I do.
And a few nights I felt a crossover, a nightmare come true,
And now I know that it has happened, because of what I did to you.

So now, I need to hurt myself, to give me a consequence,
So now, I need to fade away, and never be spoken of since.
And now, I want to hurt myself, to save myself more pain,
But all things come to an end, and it's always the same.

I'd leave a comment saying that this is sad.... but everybody else has already said that. I'd say that the speaker shouldn't hurt himself/ herself because that's not going to help anthing but that might be a little insensitive and it's clear that the speaker believes they have good reason to harm themselves, however I sort of understand where the speaker is coming from, so I'll just say this...This is a beautiful, albeit sad piece. I like it though :D. And I hope you feel better soon :D

You must never let sadness and sorrow take in. When I was still struggling to finish Highschool, but only got low grades, I tended to have suicidal thoughts. Now, look at me: graduated in History, and thinking in take a Mestry later a Doctorship in Ancient Egyptian religion.

I hope you feel a little better now :tighthug: after getting some of the feelings out in words. The pen is mightier than the sword. It is amazing how strongly someone's feelings can be conveyed in words, and I think this piece you've written can be related to by many, certainly myself for I resorted to cutting for a long time... If you need to talk, just to vent or anything, if I can do anything to help you relieve the hurt you are feeling inside, then please let me know.
