Slowly

Slowly,
Tears drop.
Slowly,
They don't stop.

Life moves
In slow motion,
Nothing to prove,
Only worthless notions.

Slowly,
I write this
Poetry.
Slowly,
I drop hints.
Slowly,
None are to care.

Blood drips
Slowly
From my fresh wounds,
From the razor.
Life just doesn't 
Work in my favor.

Slowly,
Love fails,
And no one cares 
About the details.

I'm ashamed of myself,
Lost all hope,
Lost it all quick,
But time moves slow.

I smile through the pain;
No pain no gain.
It hurts so much;
I'm so ashamed!

It's my fault;
My sorrow is on me.
No one cares when I cry!
Should I just lay down and die?

Slowly,
My life was ruined,
And I'm weak
So I cry.

And the tears fall
Slowly.
