~Suicidal Night~

I sit alone in the dark
In the dark I sit alone
Nobody sees me
I see nobody

Flowers, above
My eyes have darkened to a color never seen before
Forever closed!
It Rains!
It Rains!

In this room, I've drowned too many times
I remember cascades of water under my eyes
My satin sheets wrinkle and cold
I die and die every night
No one sees the pain that kills me every day
Wounds that reach 6 feet deep

Lucid demons
Bleeding wrist
Scary dreams
My mind is screaming
Is how I live

I'm alone-
No one's around.
My body's like a coffin
Stiff in my own home.

~A Poet Destroyer Collaboration~

Every word, every line I can relate to. The times of despair, I was there. I am here and writing, and I hear you.

No words (my comments) can do your poem justice. So now more words...apart from this is a sad (euphemism) story and a brilliant expression of it.

I feel this in my soul. Wonderful. I rarely write but when I do it's almost always through depression or joy. I love your words. I felt your pain. I read your words alone but felt your company while reading them. Thank you.

The power of well-chosen words is not to be underestimated. Disbelievers need only read this incredible poem for proof. 'Tis an unforgettable, shiver-generating composition. Congratulations, SKAT.
