Lies - Poem by Marquisha Davis

Done, done, I’m done with this.
I’ve cut my hair.
I’ve slit my wrists.
It’s all because of your stupid lies.
You said you’d stay.
You said you’d try.
You said you loved me.
You’d never cheat.
But now I’m left with pain.
It can’t be beat.
I’ve tried and tried to make it through.
But reality proves
I’m nothing without you.
So here I go.
But which way’s best?
Break my neck?
Drown myself in a nearby lake?
There are so many choices, for goodness sake!
I don’t know which one to choose.
Why don’t you pick?
It’s all because of you.
As I contemplate, the blood flows.
Onto the floor.
All over my clothes.
I’ve never, ever felt like this.
But as it gushes, I feel the bliss.
Drip, drip, drip, drop.
The blood keeps coming.
It doesn’t stop!
But I like it.
No, love it.
This feels so right.
After trying all week,
I might actually die tonight!
It’s all because of your stupid ways.
I could’ve been happy.
I could’ve lived another day.
But you chose to leave me here.
To suffer from loneliness.
To drown in my tears.
So as I lay here, my head beginning to droop,
The last image that pops into my head is of you.
The man of my dreams.
The man who made my days.
The man who chose to take my life away.
My eyelids close.
To the floor my body drops.
I can feel my heart beating slow…
Then stop.
I did it!
I’m dead!
No more dread.
I hope you suffer in grief
And remember what I said.
You could’ve stayed.
I could’ve been free.
But instead, you left.
See what you’ve done to me?
My soul has gone.
It has been sold.
To the angels above it went.
But my body lay cold.
You said you loved me.
You said you’d try.
But now I’m gone.
And it’s all because of your stupid little lies.
