All possessions given away
contemplating the escape
substances don't even numb
the aching despair, hopelessness
A band, blade, water, tablets
between life and death
intention to cease living
marked along her neck
Not much spoken
no appetite for life
totally covered in blankets
wanting to be underground
All words are now useless
sun doesn't reach the room
where a broken mind's in a tunnel
devoid of everything
