Best Rebecca Howard Poems

Pain is good I know I’m
In a world of hate in a world of lies
No one can see what is happening to me

Personal hatred in my personal life
Agonizing pain caused from my lies
Inside I wish that I could just die
No one can see that all I am is a lie

People don’t see me nobody cares
Anguish and hatred is all I see there
Intent on relief a razor I hold
Nicking my skin I don’t care what I’m told

Peace is all that I want, can
Anyone hear me
Involved with my life
No one can see me

Pain, sharp pain as I slice my wrist
After life’s gone that’s all that I wish
Incentive for life is all but gone
Never will feel cause my life is done

    Rebecca. Congratulations, but this poem...beautiful as it is, disturbs me. I hope you don't mean these words, but how could you write them otherwise? Someone does ex-husband recently killed himself and I am very sensitive to the mention of suicide. Life is HARD, but it is beautiful even in its pain. Keep writing. Keep living, Rebecca.
