Emotional Suicide - Poem by TOM Altenhofen

I hadn't eaten that day so already I was weak.
I slashed the blade down my chest and as I started to bleed,
I took the blood and wrote your name in red letters on the wall.
I ripped my heart right out and then began to fall.
I sat there in the corner already dead inside.
So right there in the corner, my body finally died.

They took away my laptop. My hair was cut off too.
They took away my future and there's nothing I can do.
Amber then left me forever and with her, my heart as well.
So I was left here with nothing. Welcome to my Hell...
