this song describes how i feel far better then i can.
Cut
By Plumb

I'm not a stranger
No I am yours
With crippled anger
And tears that still drip sore

A fragile frame aged
With misery
And when our eyes meet
I know you see

I do not want to be afraid
I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
I'm tired of feeling so numb
Relief exists I find it when
I am cut

I may seem crazy
Or painfully shy
And these scars wouldn't be so hidden
If you would just look me in the eye
I feel alone here and cold here
Though I don't want to die
But the only anesthetic that makes me feel anything kills inside

I do not want to be afraid
I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
I'm tired of feeling so numb
Relief exists I find it when
I am cut
Pain
I am not alone
I am not alone

I'm not a stranger
No I am yours
With crippled anger
And tears that still drip sore

But I do not want to be afraid
I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
I'm tired of feeling so numb
Relief exists I found it when
I was cut

I found this song about a year and a half ago. I related to it a lot and I know people who self-harm do too. I love it.

I remember this song well. Plumb had a forum on her website. Someone posted "I self-injury, does anyone else?" and there was such an overwhelming responce of "I do" "I do" "I do" "I do" that plumb wrote the song Cut. Then the forum became a safe haven for self injurers. Until the forum was shut down when plumb re-did her website. Then the forum moved to facebook. I would know, I was part of that forum. But after a recent falling out with several members, I removed myself from that forum.


I'm a poet, screaming for attention.
A singer, itching for an audience.
An actor, searching for her stage.
Don't you hear me?
Screaming for the one missing all the signs.
Why must I work so hard?!
To show you I'm dying inside?

My friend showed me this song and I fell in love with it instantly. I think I cried the first time I heard it actually, and still do sometimes. It's on my iPod now, too.
