Emptiness can hurt
No one hears the silent screams
Fighting for a way out
A race to the dirt
Surviving the dreams
Destroyed without a doubt
Does the sting ever leave
Deeper longer each time
Praying for it to stop to release
No longer do I believe
This life is not mine
Cries echo in the night.
A deep breath
No one to hear
No one to interfer
Nothing to fear
I wish I wasnt here
Before me the answer appears
End this nightmare
No longer do I care
Happiness is a joker so beware
Skin exposed bare
Knife sharp enough to cut hair
Another deep breath
Why wasn't I enough for anyone
Why am I the one always left alone
Why couldn't plans be postponed
Shouldn't they had known
Another deep breath as he enters
Finally my eyes rest upon the last one
Death came to snicker
Smiling down on me eyes glow as the lights flicker
"No more will you have to bicker.
Take it slow no rush I'll take you no quicker."
He touches my bare arm and I watch amazed as it becomes slicker
I thought Death would be cold but warmth then I realize and become sicker.
I close my eyes
Deaths voice penetrates me.
"Not so fast, slowly"
"Can't you see"
He points as I look I see my life oozing consistently
I look up at Death he smiles again coldly.
"Breathe for it's not yet time he says sickeningly.
Another deep breath
Not so deep this time
I feel my heart beat slow it's racing pace
I think of their face
My babies.. oh sweet Grace..
What have I done what got me to this place..
Another shaky deep breath
Knowing it won't be long
My cries again echo throughout
Please I want to stay they won't understand what this is about
My vision blurs
Another shallow breath
I see blackness caving in
Why did I have to be so broken
Why could no one see why weren't their hearts open
Finally my hearing starts to fade this is the end
As if in a dream I see them
I see my heart's my love I see I see the end..
Suicide is a final choice
There's nothing past death you'll have no voice
Don't be iffy make sure there's not even a small chance
Because a decision once made...
Allows Death to begin his dance...
