Farewell Cruel World

I have this wound ...deep inside my heart
That just doesn’t stop bleeding
The brutal pain I suffered through time
Left me with a dark... empty feeling.

Can’t you notice the sorrow filled tears
That drop from each glum eye
The cursed words I yell out to the world…
“I just want to ...... i just want to die!!”

Can’t you hear the whisper… shhh…
Just listen… hear the screams of despair
The end seems so near
And I don’t really seem to care

Hell doesn’t seem too far away
I can feel my soul slipping from my grasp
My vision seems blurry… I’m losing all thoughts
Seems as though I’m about to collapse…

I’m strayed from the light
Into a pitch of dark nothingness
I enter this cavern of fire
With pride that I tried my best!

This gun feels so heavy
Can’t believe my time has come
After so many years of being ignored
I will finally die alone

As tears fall from my eyes
And tremble...with the gun pointed at my head
Knowing that in a minute or two
I will be dead!!!
I say goodbye to whoever sees this
Because you cared enough to have read
Hope I don’t see you where I’m going
For you will be filled with regret……

    Very powerful emotions of despair, Felipe. To write about these feelings so vividly, you must have experienced them. I hope the pain is behind you now. So many people consider suicide as an alternative to living with sadness in their hearts. Strong, heartfelt write. Love, Carolyn
