Only A Matter Of Moments


sitting here alone
with the thoughts of how things used to be
going crazy of wanting things back the way
they used to be
I kept trying to call and text
asking you for help
or at least just hear the comfort of your voice
I'm sitting here with a bottle of vodka and a razor blade
only a matter of moments
before I lose it
and run the razor down my veins

    Holy s desperation
    Portrayal of last truest moments
    We all need to know that we aren't abandoned and alone
    That there are so many people out there to support us, for us to fall back on..
    Being out of touch should not equate to spiraling away into darkness then death
    Just because others haven't called or texted, you should definitely reach out to them! (Report) Reply

    Well written. Sad piece. One that takes their own life gave up on life. When we rely on someone else to save us we all die unless we rely on God's love. This is a poem not of desperation but a need for attention. The ones who actually commit suicide never wanted help they just did it. (Report) Reply

    Yes I say we poets have the religion! yes I say, I shout, I howl for our religion is sensitivity.
    A poignant poem with implicit meaning and explicit imagery... Great poem by a writer with lot of potential writer... (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
