I want to cut. I will not.

Stumbling

I want to cut.

I will not.

But I want to.

When I’m bored.

When I’m sad.

When I’m scared.

Comfort in the knife.

Safety in the blade.

But it’s gotten me in trouble.

I’m scared about my job.

They know about my struggles,

and I fear they want me gone.

I’m on forced leave.

For the second time.

Had a craving,

didn’t cut,

but held a knife.

Someone saw.

Said it scared her.

Now I’m feared.

Like I’d hurt others.

When I only hurt me.

It makes me sad.

Makes me want to die.

And I suppose I would.

If not for my kids and wife.

For them I continue forward.

For them I won’t cut any more.

I just hope I can recover.

I hope I can save my job.

I hope I can save me.
