This Can’t Be Right!

by Nevermore

This can’t be right, this has to be a nightmare, a bad dream, induced by too many pieces of Halloween candy. I have to be seven years old, eight years old, tossing and turning in my bed. This cannot be my life, it shouldn’t be. I’m 14 years old and I’m a self-harmer, a ‘cutter,’ though I’d rather say I cut myself. The scars on my skin are mysteriously starting to fade, not that you’d know it. You’d take a glimpse at my unscarred arms, glance at the armband on my right wrist that never comes off. You might think for a moment that my scars lay there, but realize I’m a “righty.” Maybe if you are intelligent, you think to check my legs, but no. Fitting to the summer heat, I stopped wearing long pants two months back. No one thinks to check my hips.

I’m 14 years old, I shouldn’t have attempted six times. I shouldn’t have attempted once! And please, before you comment on how many attempts I’ve made, they were fits of passion, yet zombie-like, never in my right mind, never when the sun is up and my thoughts are collected.

I’m 14 years old, and this has to be a nightmare. But it isn’t – this is my life.

I’m sure you got your reasons. Is there nothing in life you look forward to?

I understand what you mean. I pray every night for god to wake me from the nightmare that i live in. Apparently he’s too busy…

Believe it or not, no. I’m through with this. The only reason I’m still here is because my friend asked me not to.


Same thing here. You just have to keep moving forward, no matter what.
