>≫≫I Want To Die

Heavenly cursed and heavily sinned I
No more i like to add them, so, I want to die
And I want to become a holy ghost
Whom the people would like the most.
Like the retreating soldiers I like to come back
To my own permanent and eternal home
You may call it a suicide or martyrdom.

In my real home I see the news
Coming from the lipstick coated lips
In the television of my molten death
People are sobbing with a heavy breath.
The atmosphere is heavy and they feel the pain
This thrills me and gives a feeling of gain.


The only son of my father
The only darling of my mother
Fainted repeatedly on the cushion
Peal like tear drops coming from my beloved son,
Friends and relatives express grief in the community hall,
All these excite me and I sought to say'' I love you all.''

For the first time in my life in my last ritual I listen
From those men that I was really a very very good man.
In such intense atmosphere of gloom and sad
My heart cheers and I become too much glad.

    A poem which moved my stream of emotions. Nicely written and reflects that hopeless times when one wishes death smiles at him.

    So much to think about in this poem. Sadness is my first thought because it is only in death that one feels the passion and love from others. The hope would be to feel that love and emotion during life for a peaceful existence. Yes, sad but written with such thought and emotion. A great write!

    It is a good emotional penning of knowing the value by ending oneself? Then does not prove a hypocrite society who so long did not value a life till the end and at least shedding tears to recognize? ?

    Interesting perspective of something that sometimes it's very hard to describe since we only can see one side of the coin...
    Well written! :)

    Well crafted, Dark


    Blanca Prior598 days ago
    Given the reality of the times this is a bit depressing, however I feel it brings light to the fact that individuals that commit suicide aren't aware of how much love and support they have because everyone waits until that person is dead to express their true emotions. Although very dark it calls to a positive realization... that you don't know what you have until you lose it.
