Why Cut

But Why?
She said.
Why would you hurt yourself
This way?
The pain must be unbearable.

Of course,
She’s right.
The only thing more unbearable
Than this coursing,
Cutting,
Pain
Is the pain it masks and hides
For just a moment.
The emotional pain.
The memories.
The future fears.
They hurt more
Than any self-inflicted pain.

And so I cut.
Replacing one pain
With another,
For just a moment.

It’s almost unbearable.
But it’s a relief.
