    I understand how you feel... Even I dream of suicide to take me. Many people say that the message is awful, but sometimes we all need a way to release our emotions - and sometimes that 'way' is through poems. I can feel your pain, and I hope that you will be free... (Report) Reply

    I hear your pain and feel it to. But be carfull with what you will do. Do not kill your self only your pen. Look around and you'll see your friends. Dont die not just yet. Your a beautiful girl I bet. (Report) Reply

    Lisa, suicide is never the answer. I can't believe some of the comments about this being entertaining, or someday you'll be free from problems.These comments make me so sad. Listen I am bipolar suffer from depression and have panic attacks, I know how you feel but trust me killing yourself is not the answer.Tomorrow could be a better day there's so much to live for get to a doctor fast please i really do care and will pray your ok Think about your family and the grief they would never get over. Keep writing but write about hope and goals, places you'd like to visit-write about your future dreams.I'm 49 now its been a hard life but i can still smile and force myself to live love and find happiness I care please care about yourself Medication will help e-mail me if you want to talk I'm sorry your going through this.

    Suicide, I like it, not necessarily the act itself, but the slightest possibility that you could someday be free of all these problem and people. I feel your pain and embrace; I too once wrote about these things, but me being unstable at the time never convinced myself into any of it, but oh, well I enjoy the poem none the less, it is good to know I'm not the only one out there that may think in this train of thought, and with this said I rate it a 10.

    The poem is good construction the message awful. If you can write poetry like this grab life with both hands and enjoy it. (Report) Reply

    wow. so simple yet has so much meaning. it sucks how suicide can be so near to us at many occasions. yet something always keeps us thinking straight. yet we constantly are going to obstacles that make suicide seem to be a much more peaceful solution. but i tell you this. Dont. hold on. no matter what your going through hold on. good things come to those who wait. keep waiting for better. you'll be happier in the end. lovely poem though. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
