How does one manage to cut their skin?
Tear the veins that run within?
How do you carefully steal a knife?
The tool that's used to end your life?
How do you hide from prying eyes?
How do you muffle your painful cries?
Where do you cut so that no one will see?
So no one at school will question me?
How long does it take to disappear?
A day, a month or even a year?

How does one pretend not to care?
Pretend to read but simply stare?

How does one refrain from eating?
But not act like you're competing?
How does one fill the great black hole?
Without the hunger taking its toll?

How do you make yourself violently sick?
How do you get your body to tick?
I've tried before but there's one small snag,
All I can manage is a pitiful gag.

But perhaps the question I should ask,
Rather than how to complete this task,
Maybe I should just sit down and cry,
And ask myself not how but why?
I've decided to start taking requests for the subjects of poems, so if you would you like to me give me something to write about then please do so (:

1. usually cutting of the skin is done with a small razor, although knifes may be just as acceptable depending on preference. Usually it is done due to mental instability and marks are created in hidden areas such as the upper arm. Deep cuts that may arise from such activity may take six weeks to heal provided the injury in question is not reopened.

2. Many people can do this, it is a form of acting.

3. people with anorexia and bulimia usually feel bad knowing they have food in them due to a complex mental disorder. Because of this disorder and their strong feelings against food, hunger pains are usually ignored.

4. people can become sick through a variety of ways, such as infection, malnourishment, and exposure to a harmful substance.

5. I have no idea why.

I'm going to answer the first paragraph... (Your lines are in italic) I hope you don't mind :/

How does one manage to cut their skin?
Perhaps it is the hope this will fix everything,

Tear the veins that run within?
The sight of the blood could cleanse the hurt,

How do you carefully steal a knife?
Break apart a razor, nobody notices that,

The tool that's used to end your life?
The practice of night time excursions, made me silent,
How do you hide from prying eyes?
Eyes do not look my way, eyes do not care anyway, 

How do you muffle your painful cries?
The pain I feel makes me happy, I feel alive,
Where do you cut so that no one will see?
I only wear long sleeves, it won't be a change from the norm,

So no one at school will question me?
I'm ignored as it is, I get no questions,

How long does it take to disappear?
Who cares? I'll be long gone by then,

A day, a month or even a year?
If I live I'll just get a tattoo to hide them...

I hope you don't mind, I got really inspired to write the thoughts of someone who was feeling like doing that in between your own lines, I hope you don't mind.
Basically it's my boyfriends struggle, he's got a tattoo now, hiding the past from our son. I've read a few of your poems now, they're brilliant.
