354 (who?)
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.

Sigh/ This is beatiful and depressing at the same time.

Watch the embracing little emote until you regain a sense of calm.

Thanks for the notes. I was beginning to worry that this was yet another poem advocating suicide (sigh)
