Life can be tough

A gun pointed at my head,
Loaded with bullets of life,
Trigger pulled,
Exploding into my head with drama,
Problems splattered all over the wall.

A long rope made with love,
Tied with a knot made from heartache,
Wrapped around my neck with fake promises, 
Jumped down off the chair of relationships, 
Pain died out like the oxygen to my lungs.

A long knife sharp with stress,
Carved into my veins with long hours but no pay, 
Bleeding to death like I work to death,
My blood drained out of me with self esteem issues and demoralisation.

Pills filled with life and all its issues, 
Popping them one by one, 
Swallowing drama, 
Heart break and stress, 
Intoxicating my soul for "life".
