~Suicidal Night~

I sit alone in the dark.
In the dark I sit alone.
Nobody sees me.
I see nobody.


Flowers, above.
My eyes have darkened to a color never seen before.
Forever closed!
It Rains!
It Rains!

In this room, I've drowned too many times.
I remember cascades of water under my eyes.
My satin sheets wrinkle and cold.
I die and died every night.
No one sees the pain that kills me every day.
The wounds that reach 6 feet deep.

Lucid demons
Bleeding wrist
Scary dreams
Is how I live

I'm alone-
No one's around.
My body's like a coffin
Stiff in my own home.

    Is this reaching out for help? or just a really cool dark poem?

    Hello, Skat A. I cannot offer much in praise, except to say I read this on a personal level. It is as good as all say, and more. I would have preferred to offer praise privately, so I could more effectively thank you in turn for the kind words you offered me. Doing things like this where others may overhear is quite embarrassing.

    Very good imagery. Life behind the smile. When life attacks us and we feel misunderstood. Our world becomes this room and we need to break out. Your words bring out the emotion you feel.

    Such lovely language: "Nobody sees me./I see nobody." I have been depressed/suicidal and this resonates deeply with me. I also admire, "In this room, I've drowned too many times" and "I die and died every night." The last, the breakage and upsetting of time, is so accurate. I love the disassociation with reality--it's EXACTLY what I've felt. And thank you for your kind message on my poem yesterday. Is there a way to message here? If not, email me and we'll chat:

    Oh SKAT, what a deep and dark place your poem describes, it paints a picture of pure saddness.... I judge my contest blindly and didnt know this was written by you.... Congratulations on your win, thank you for taking part...

    A deeply emotive write that takes the reader to where the poet is coming from. This is why you stand apart, SKAT. You do not make the reader feel guilty, and so we would like to join you and understand. hugs!
