As I Lay Dying

As I lay dying, My wrists slit, Slowly bleeding out, Gathering into little puddles, The very essence of my life, Now lies wasted on the floor, I wonder how did I get to be here? But I don't remember, Because my mind is a haze, Of lost memories, That I'd rather not remember, As I descend into, The deep dark abyss of nothingness, I realize something, I realized that I'm not afraid to die, I'm safe now, I feel no pain, As I descend further into the abyss, I think about my family and friends, It's only then that I realize that I'll be missed, I realize how much I'll miss them, Now I regret the choice I made, I made a really stupid decision, To take myself away from my family and friends, I realize now, That I can't undo, What I have done, It's too late now, I've crossed the line of no return, I finally stop falling, I've reached the bottom of the abyss, This is my final goodbye... So goodbye...forever, I fade into nothingness, I relax and let the darkness consume me,

I'm sure that there is a lot of people who have felt this way, at one point I had felt like all hope was lost, and that the answer was suicide, lucky i was afraid and made it back to the real world safely. Your expressions are honest and real. keep writing it is very theraputic
