Whats a secret about you?
Uh, not really a secret, but kinda:
I’ve been put on suicide watch by my school many times because of my writing, and all of my teachers will probably still think I’m gonna off myself until I graduate.
I think the first time was when I wrote a poem about a girl who fell off of a cliff and drowned, so my English teachers called my dad in and said something along the lines of:
“Salem is a wonderful writer, and this is certainly a creative poem, but we are worried she might kill herself.”
There was another time I tried writing from a characters perspective that kept getting revived (kinda like Russian Doll) and they called my parents at two in morning, and they had to explain that first, I was not dead, I was literally sleeping and cuddling with my cat two feet away from my mother, and second, I was just writing a story.
Oh, actually, I think the first time was when I was writing a paper and couldn’t remember what a noose was called and searched up “that hanging thing” and they thought I was trying to actually tie a noose, so they called my mom and she just shouted from the kitchen “sweetheart, what the hell are you researching, your school thinks your trying to hang yourself!”.
The ironic part is that they didn’t even catch the signs when I was actually suicidal, ones that we have annual assemblies to be aware of.
Why do I have to live like this! 😫
Madame just assigned the whole classroom to sing a song last week, and today, this afternoon, we'll be performing one by one!
