What do you do when you know someone who cuts?

What do you do when you know someone who cuts?
When someone is too scared to end there life,
So they cope by seeing seeping blood.
Do you comfort them and hope to help them not?

What do you do when you know someone who has self hatred?
When you know they are in a dark corner
Wearing a jacket over bruises and cuts.
Do you give them advice and try to give them escape from their feeling of numb?

What do you do when you know they blame themselves?
When you know they are spellbound
To their own misfortune melt downs.
Do you tell them you love them and say they mean a lot to you?

What do you do when It gets out of hand?
When there is no more room for new scars,
When they have just gone so far?
Do you tell them they can live and hope they choose to exist?

Finally, What would I do without them?
Mourn and blame myself,
Become like them?
Or will I hurt so bad I become so numb I canít give in?

I love them so much and don't want them to cut.
I don't know how to stop them,
But if I find a way to take their pain and cast it onto me,
I will.

Please don't cut.
You are in my life and I love you.
There is no need,
You are loved, and cared by me so just please,
Don't cut.
