    It's very moving and very true. It's difficult to judge people on that state of mind. And it is even more difficult to be IN that state of mind! I believe that physical abuse of oneself is a way of escape from the current 'pain' which seems so abstract. I guess, hurting oneself physically makes the pain more obvious and something you can deal with... with a cure/medicine...which you can't do with emotional/mental distress.

    From personal experience, the inner pain/hurt is more difficult to deal with compared with a bleeding wound. You don't know what to do with emotional pain...you want to run... you want to cry...you want to just sit there hoping it would go away...or drown yourself with the television or with reading inspiring books. And sometimes, there's this moment that maybe just by hurting yourself and feeling the physical pain..you feel alive again.

    Thanks for the poem! ;)
