The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
—William Arthur Ward
The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.
—Daniel J. Boorstin

Clench your teeth and close your eyes,
while sharp metal carves through your apple-white wrists.
You expect the pain, you welcome it.
But still you must fight to keep your stormy eyes from releasing a rebellious tear.
Still you must hold back the scream that demands to be released from your torn lips.
Crimson beauty leaks through, dirtying the ivory skin it protects so dearly,
hitting the cold floor like an angel crying from heaven.
Not deep enough to fall into eternal sleep, not enough to be free forever.
You promise yourself that tomorrow it will end, the metal against the skin.
But to keep that promise, tomorrow must never come.

The author's comments:
I hope people will see the eternal struggle some people have just to live.

Bella's love for Edward was like, "Omg. He's hot. He's mine because he sparkles. Now I'll brood the wholle book while I'm with him." good!!!!! (?)

anyway, i'd expect to see something like this in a poetry book. Go and publish it. I can't really see anything wrong wth it. This is about cutters, isn't it? or suicidals. Nice work portraying how it feels.
