Suicide Is a Messy Thing

in this trap 

only one way out

death can set me free

dark thoughts in my head

only gone when I'm dead

free as a bird I long to be

so much pain 

so much sorrow

turn out the light

no more tomorrow

but how to do it

could use a gun

but might make a mess

a hole in my head

and blood on my dress

I'll do it quick and clean

just take some pills

drift off and dream

if I'm dead I won't be sad

but no more dreams good or bad

maybe I can work this out

maybe it's not all that bad

in this trap I think I'll stay

tomorrow is a whole new day

maybe things will get better

forget the gun

forget the pills

forget the suicide letter

how can I throw life away

as if it's no big deal

okay so life isn't perfect

but wounded hearts can heal

    A heart wrenching write, Lori. "Wounded hearts" do heal, bruises disappear and even scars fade. Poetry is a great release and outlet for a damaged heart, I'm sure (if this is for real), that things will get even better for you!:) Keep well, Mikki

    I can relate with this presently. Long story. But I can't walk away. Too many strings holding me here. Besides I don't want to come back it might be worse. So ill finish the mission this time.

    Thank you so much. I read several of yours and will continue reading them. I really enjoyed The Grim Reaper.
