STILL  NOT  DEAD     ( no kids allowed 2 read)

This morning I took my med.
taking more than my dose.

I am still here thrown in bed,
Lifeless and nobody knows.

I am still alive I am still not dead
I don't think I succeeded my overdose.

Should have cut my vain instead,
or stuck a whole ounce my nose.

To scared to put a gun to my head,
that would have been very gross.

Couldn't even stand it if I bled,
Stupid, me now I find a hose down my nose.

Still not dead,
Regret  the day you propose.

The day I said "I DO" I dread
The feelings that came, I let nobody know.

Thinking of ways of dying instead,
holding my breath is all I show.

All this started on the day of our  wed,
imagination took over making my  mind blow.

Finding my self here  still not dead,
Who said suicide  is easier than a DIVORCE !!


=( Not a fact, just humor over my marriage! )=

    Very strong and incisive write on an attempted suicide caused by depression over a failed marriage. This reminded me Dorothy Parker's "Resume" "Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live. " A sad view of divorce for some, and a very good write from you.

    the sweetest revenge you extract from a jilted lover is to live a good life with absolutely no acknowledgement of the if it never happened that's happiness from a hellbound heart

    Is Marriage or suicide scarier? Glad this was fictional humor. Vince

    Great Write Irma Hole, but if the truth be told, I'm just leaving comments on all your work freely. There's just no way I can comment on all of your work if I was to give everyone a read. I'm just leaving you comments randomly, and then maybe you can take the number one slot away from PD. My newest and most favorite arch enemy. Always luvin U, Your Kiddy-Pooo.

    great to know it's not a fact, suicide is a serious thing, im out of my mind, there must be a deeper meaning for crazy, suicide is still no good.the day of your wedding you said, i wonder if you were happy even for a moment):i can ony comment so many people today, im sorry i havn't commented back for so long, but i should be back on wed. or thur. and post new poems the way, im 17.and actually love punch actually was my imagination, not a dream!i'll read more poems soon!-Always
