'why Me?' And 'bruised' And 'for The First Time'
I wrote these because i had a few friends who were cutters, i wrote this to put it down and make the load a little lighter on my shoulders, in case your wandering most of them have stopped
Chloe L Batey
I love reading my old stuff. It shows me how bad I really was. So I culled a little, getting rid of the truly terrible stuff, and leaving some of the semi-terrible stuff for laughs.
I've been published in a poetry book (The Nightingale). Oher then that I have no real 'accomplishment' when it comes to writing. I attempt to be honest in my work, drawing very rarely from my experience (I have a drama free and relatively boring life) and instead drawing on imagination and my family and friends.
I write better when I'm in a depressed mood. So that's why at the moment I rarely write. that and it doesn't matter if I write or not.

'why Me?' And 'bruised' And 'for The First Time'
Chloe L Batey
Why am I picked on?
Why am I me?
So many questions please answer me!
Why am I hated? Why am I so scared
How can I know If you don’t care?
How did I live when everyone
Said, I was nothing more than a
Waste of space. I thought I think, I see
The truth my end lies
Here. And my anger brought
Me to my death. I’m doing you a favour
So please remember I died for love. Please remember
I had to go. Don’t remember me and don’t ask the question over and over in your head. Please don’t ask
I’m Bruised blue and yellow
Hated by many, picked on spat on
Beaten, hurt, pain. Its funny how my
Life is worthless, the cuts are deep, the
Pain is great, the end is near, I can feel
It, my family died In my soul, I feel nothing
Anymore. The only thing I feel is sadness depression
“life Sucks” I yell, and grab the knife one more time
I lay there bleeding. I write a note:
“sorry, I have died for nothing,
Except the hatred of the world,
Let me escape from your soul,
As I have escaped the world.
for the first time
Sadness washed over me when I tried to smile
Death was all around me when I wanted life,
Depression is what they told me was happening,
My family stood by me my friends deserted me,
Afraid I would affect them, I sit everynight crying,
When I finally have enough, I write a note for my
Family and one for my friends:
“I’m sorry for what I’ve done
I’m sorry for who I am,
I might be taking the cowards
Way out, but I’ll be happier gone’
And that was that good bye for now….
Ill see you in heaven were you’ll see a smile on my face
For the first time.

"i admire the last four lines of Bruised-the message sent is so powerful-in particular the line "let me escape from from your soul"-to me it is saying to not be hurt by the death but to just let go and i think thats what stops a lot of people from actually committing suicide-the guilt of hurting those around you-anyway i loved it " -- kira.
