The best time to do it is when no one’s watching.
When it’s late at night and everyone’s asleep.
Take the nearest one you can find and sit down.. calm yourself.
Stay relaxed in between heavy tears.
And then, slice.
Force it in as hard as you can. It doesn’t need to bleed.
Bite your tongue if the pain is too much.
Hide the knife when they come in.
Pretend to smile
Even when your eyes are red and puffy.
Take it out when they leave
Blood is no object.
In the morning, the scars are gone.
But the pain is forever.
