Suicide - Poem by Lisa French

I sit here by myself, thinking of suicide
I look at a knife, wanting to commit suicide
I look at a photo, hating my life
Telling myself, suicide stops the pain

I turn the lights off, alone in dark
Reaching for the knife, that’s going to take it away
I think of certain people, they don’t care
For the first time, I think of myself

I dig the knife, into part of my skin
Letting all of my blood, pour out
I’m not dying quick enough, so another cut I make
Then a final cut on my neck, and a stab in my heart

    Ive read most of your poems and i have to say they are good. People usully dont understand suicide poems but i do. If the pain is too great its always good to get it down in writing. To just express your pain and let others know you share the shame of a suicidle person. I wish i knew you in person then we could be frineds and have some fun with our words. Keep it up we are all your friends. (Report) Reply

    poems are how you express your self
    its a way to tell people how you really feel
    OR at least it is for most people
    i love your poems
    i can relate to most of these when
    i read these poems its like if you were writing like you were me
    everything you write is like if you were in my life
    i love these poems so much they help me i don't know how but they do
    AND if you are really thinking of do this then as a complete stranger im asking you not to it would hurt all of the people around you hope you write more poems like this a big fan <3 heidi (Report) Reply
