Life or Death

Wondering Lost and alone Forgotten by all I whisper my wish Of a place where I can survive Somewhere I can escape these Spinning circle of lies Hatred spreading like fire Jumping from mind to mind; A parasitic replica of my battles That torments me even now Far beyond the grave Yet still so close to life Light Darkness The choice is my to make Life Death Wake up Stay asleep How can I choose I don’t want to wake up alone I don’t want to die alone Somewhere I know There is someone Who could help… But they don’t No one does And I choose the least painful Where no one will have to miss me No one will cry No one Will know, I am dead…

    It helps to write out our thoughts on paper. But you know, this kind of pain is hard to get rid of. I have some thoughts similar to these lines. Always, Laura

    Well this is sad but very nicely written. The sadness actually burst out from the poem...one could feel it easily. Really awesome!!!
