Blood-Stained Knife

Blood-Stained Knife

Fading from life
With a blood stained knife
Wasting away
Cutting deep
Blood on the ground
Is my own falling down
As I black out 
I hear screaming
Don't let go
But I want to 
I don't like my life
So I cut with my blood stained knife
And I close my eyes 
And try to fly away
Trying not to live everyday
But just as I reach the gates
I wake up
In a hospital bed
Handcuffed down 
Someone next to me
Sitting their with a notebook 
Upon seeing me awake
I'm asked if I am ok
And I said no
But I am again ignored
I am asked all these questions 
What do I remember about the attack
What I did about it
What was I thinking
And my answer was
Their was no attack 
I tried to end my life
With that blood stained knife 
And now I'm asked why
Cause I wanted to end my life
With that blood stained knife 
I don't wanna live anymore
I hate my life
So kill me with that blood stained knife 
Hurt everyday
All I want to do is fade away 
So with that blood stained knife
I will end my life

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
