Apologetic Suicide

I'm apologizing early,
Because I already know
I will be forever missed
But it's my time to go

People cannot help me
I have already tried
We've all become so stupid!
My love towards us has died

The knife is already bloody
And my wrists are something else..
The world is too cruel for me
I'd rather be in hell.

I cannot express my sorrow
I can't explain my pain
So, today's the day, and I'm ready.
And I'm the one to blame

    This is an excellent piece of artistic expression. Such talent should be put to good use. I have wrote poetry from the bottom of a deep dark hole and I readily identify with this type of creative expression. Please read my poems redemption, absolution and tattooed tears. If you focus on your writing, which you are talented at, you'd by surprised who much comfort and determination you can draw from it :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
