Treasure Island

Michael McParland


Suicide a persons rightful choice.
When I complete mine I'll be all alone of course.
Without you I'm empty deep inside,
of course you won't even know I've dug into my hole and have my.45 right by my side.
So few will notice,
so few will care.
My worthless life with no real reason disappearing without a good mark remembered cause who even cares?

I long for my end my sweet relief.
To slide away from madness pain and a broken heart I can't explain,
You can't understand because I can't even explain,
just what drives me even though I've searched and in the right directions tried to veer. Enough though with this failed useless venture.

My life a black destructive useless cancer.
You don't know how deep I truly feel.
You're not here to see my daily struggles with the insanity hurt and fear that swing around and hit me with reckless abandon.

My love is shattered though still all right here.
I've only cried for days and nights with no sleep and in my mind such painful banter.

My suicide is going to be my relief.
My escape from no understanding and a world I hate because it's cold and over demanding.

30 years of madness pain and rage in rush.
It's burned me out,
it's tiring I'm so damn done.
And no matter what you say or think I love you more than anyone can ever know or think.

    your love will follow you
    it is a bright spot on your soul
    you'll grab another body when you are ready

    this madness here is all part of a cosmic balance

    I love you brother (Report) Reply
