She writes such lovely poems
But nobody really cares
She hides them all the time
To avoid the judging stares

She wrote one yesterday
About a boy who said he loved her
But to her own dismay
She caught him with another

She wrote one about school
And the words painted on her locker
“No one likes you, stupid bitch.
You’re lucky I’m at soccer.”

She wrote about her parents
And how she wished they were together
But she knows that won’t ever happen
And forgetting’s probably better

Yes, she writes such lovely poems
But there’s so much more to this
See, her pencil is a razor
And the paper is her wrist.
Stop the cutting. Stop the burning. Stop hurting yourself. There's so much more to life than this, I promise. Put the blade down. Put the the cigarette down. And please pick up the pen... Write me a poem. Scribble your thoughts onto paper. Just don't keep doing this to yourself.
You'll be alright. I promise.

*Edit 10/27/13*
This got so much more attention than I thought it would... Thank you, everybody. Thank you so much.

It's really provoking.... So true..... I know how this feels I know so many peopl like this too but some have already gone.....  My dear friend Henry..... I loved him..... He decided to kill himself..... I wish that he had seen your account beforehand, because your poems are so beautiful and meaningful and I'm sure it would have made him rethink some things

I get the message and I know it well. I have been through the message severale times and Im still going through it. But I have things in my life that help me through it. The one major thing is my kind hearted girlfrien who was the first person to me for who I am and the first one to help me when no one els would. I am greatfull to have her in my life.

I used to afflict self harm on my arms and for the moment, it felt good...but that burning sensation stung, and I could never find full satisfaction from it...
This speaks to me on so many volumes. I'm happy now; happier than I have ever dreamed I would be. But those last four lines...wow, they hit home. 
Thank you. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

And the paper is her wrist.

This is so true. And when I saw this as I logged in, I started thinking about this thing I saw before. It was like,

"She paints a pretty picture but this story has a twist.

See, her paintbrush is her razor and her paper is her wrist."

There was more to it but I don't remember. Now I wanna look that up.

 

But I love this.

Yes, that is a poem by Amy Efaw in her book titled "After." I read it, and it inspired me.
