Treasure Island

Amy Kerswell

(04 06 1987 / Bath UK)

My life was my my Prison.


My life was my prison it was my enemy.
It left me to choose suicide.
I didnt have any other choice,
I had no other way left.

I couldnt grin and bare my pain any more.
I couldnt cope with with what others did to me.
Suicide is my only way.

I tryed in vain to win the fight.
I trey so desperatly to stay and fight.
But in the end my fighting was for nothing my demons won.

There was nothing left too do.
I took the plunge and decided too simply end it all.
If I could of fighted it off and won I would of stayed.
But I realised it was pointless.
I knew it had beaten me.

    After thirty years, I know there ae no answers. I only know the pain must come to an end. The love I feel for my husband is not the same as what he feels for me. I truly a alone and even God has forsaken me. I am an accident in the universe. There is no tomorrow. It ends today. I am not loved, not truly. God bless those with the strength to go on.....I am not one of them. So, goodbye. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
