looking in the mirror

Looking in the mirror 
With a gun held to my head 
Looking at the cuts 
And the knife under my bed 
Looked upon my arms 
And thought about the guy 
Put the gun down and started to cry 

Reaching for my knife 
Putting it through my skin 
Crying a tear or two 
Yelling fuck everything 

Blood rushed onto the floor 
As I had no will to stop 
Kept on cutting deeper 
Until I finally drop 

Blood was running through the flaw 
In-between the cracks 
Took my mum five minutes 
To realize what I’d done. 

I died that day alone 
Thinking of my life 
The boy who made me take my life 
He never even loved me 
I was his sitting duck 
His little bunny rabbit
That was only for show and tell.

    Ain't worth it. No problem, grief or sorrow will ever justify suicide. Good write

    a very deep dark sad write - I have worked with young adults who self harm - breaks my heart to read your poem. Move on away from someone who isn't worthy of your love:-) Hugs Jan xx

    No man is worth taking a shot at yourself Tracey and if some one treats you that bad move on to a different and a better partner... Hope the drama is only related to the verse:) Take care
