The life of a cutter is much more than it seems
it is merely not just one small cut that redeems.
The emotions they have are all bundled inside
the scars that they make they try so hard to hide.

And they act always happy when they aren't alone
and when you call them,they'll never answer the phone.


They're too busy cutting away at their lives
they stock up on razors by twos or by fives.
The tip of the blade is so very sharp
the blood of the cutter flows on a tarp.


The emotions of a cutter are expressed by the scars
the life span of a cutter may not be so far.
The life of a cutter in a poem.


Edit

I'd like to thank for the line:
"The tip of the blade is so very sharp
the blood of the cutter flows on a tarp."

I love it, though i have to say it makes me long for the nights before the blade, when I knew who I was, before I was having withdrawals from the blade, before the metal ever touched my skin. However, you did a very good job, and it did help in other ways, for I must come to terms with who I have become over the past year or so, and it really has helped with that, showing me with words that I myself couldn't find, how I have been feeling.

Beautiful poem.
Though I don't use razors, I use knives, it describes the emotions that I feel very well.
Great job (:

For some cutters there's a fear someone they're close to will find out, and that fear is almost unparalleled.

You got so many emotions named in this piece that I can't even name myself, and I know from experience the emotions in it.

This was very well-written :)

this is a really cool poem, it makes you sound like your a cutter, in a good way, cuz you really captured all the emotions, i love the line "The emotions they have are all bundled inside
the scars that they make they try so hard to hide."
good job!

I liked this piece of work and I thought while it was very ture and very deep into this life, It felt to me like a few of the rhymes were being forced onto the page. The rhymes such as Sharp and tarp, where the line with tarp in it seemed like you had to rhyme with that word. My suggestion is maybe have the line...
"The tip of the blade is so very sharp
the cutter may catch all the blood with a tarp."

...Made so that the second line is shorter or has a smaller amout of syllables. This would just make it flow a little better and make the rhymes seem unforced. Maybe something like...
"The tip of the blade is so very sharp
the blood of the cutter flows on a tarp."


I don't mean to sound like I'm disrespecting you or your work so please don't think I am, I just think that this was a wonderful poem, and with a few tweeks it could be an amazing one.

I like this one a lot.
It's funny, because a lot of time I'm hesitant to give poetry a chance.
I'm stupid that way.
Anyways, I always try to offer criticism, even though I'm not a poet. As such, take the following sentence with a grain of salt: The forth line in the first stanza sound a bit unfinished to me.
I'm not going to say anything else, because I'm sure your either have a reason or a method of fixing it, and really I'm just procrastinating my biology project again. SO ANYWAYS
This poem conveys emotion, although I hope you never have to deal with this type of depression, and it reminds me of someone I know who has had this issue in the past.
Which is good! :thumbsup: Haha.

Mais nooon....
Well, I suck at poetry. Whenever I try to write it for a school project or something, I just hack out a few words, like:
The blue forest cried of season
when the blue was green and the green
was the ink from a pen.
Or something. And then it's like A+ but it's shallow and has no real meaning.
Perhaps someday...
