Rachie West

My Friend, Death

An escape from the world
From all the sorrow
The pain
The hurt
An escape from the darkness
Into the darkness
Never to come back out
I've looked for other ways
I've found other doors
But all of them were locked
The only door opened is death
Death will cradle me
Death will wipe my tears away
Death will comfort me
Death will love me
Death will do what no one else could
Death will understand
Death will be my friend

    maybe 'Eithne' doesn't know Rachie's circumstances. i don't. i don't think suicide is thoughtless, though i think some people could profit by giving it more thought before trying it. then, hopefully, they would find a better solution or at least not screw up an attempt and make matters even worse (by failing to die, but causing terrible injury) for the intended and unintended victims of suicide. Rachie, are you still alive five years later? thanks for sharing.

    Please do not do anything thoughtless! death dress like 'suicide' brings nothing but far more pain in the afterlife. God already lends you His helping hand, even if you can't see it right now. Please be patient. I hope i managed to bring you some encouragement.
    Have faith: you'll eventually unlock the closed doors you're talking about. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
