Choices - Poem by Doom and Gloom

Should I simply end my life?
Would save you all a load of pain
With the dragging of a knife
Deep across my bloody vein

Should I simply fade and die?
Would take the burden off your back
Hurl my body through the sky
Upon the concrete I would crack

Should I simply leave the stage?
May haps that would give you hope?
Choke myself within a rage
Limply hang from rugged rope

Should I simply disappear?
Leave you happy far behind
Submerse myself without fear
Float away for none to find

Should I simply face my doom?
I don’t think you’d be proud of me
Breathe in deep the poison fume
And sleep in peace eternally

Should I simply cease to be?
Close my eyes and shut it down
Devoid of what’s sustaining me
Waste away without a sound

    I like this poem for its hurt. It's so neatly woven also. I'd make a guess it was written a few years ago... (Report)Reply

    Good work again, although I hope that you don't do what you are discribing in this poem, otherwise we would lose a great talent. And don't let your poetry be limited by your name... (Report)Reply

    I like this suicide piece. There remains, however, an open end... as if something more needs to be said. (Report)Reply

    The stark contrast of such beautiful words so beautifully placed about so ugly a subject. Fascinating. (Report)Reply
