Living In The Darkness - Poem by Secrets Of The Dark

living in the darkness does things to you
it tares you from the inside out
ripping you slowly till you have nothing
but ashes from the flames that consumed your life
taking every breath of happiness and stabing you in the heart
stinging you deeply were your eyes can't see
killing you slowly until your left with nothing
leaving you bundled up in a corner
feeling empty and alone
only leaving you with the slashes on your wrists from trying to take
it away
bleeding every ounce of happiness of what you once had
leaving you but once again
but this time forever
ending your pain with the slashes of your own knife
you try to end your life
in a corner bleeding
from the stings of your own blade
finaly ending the pain of the bad memories of your past
one last final time

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I've know a few people who have tried to commite suicide and failed. But when I was told about the first friend that was very close to me a few days later I started to think about her and why she would have done what she did and this came to me. I wrote this poem thinking of you Chealsea. The goth girl who would stand up for me when I wasn't their and had my back when I was. Even though you've moved away I still think of you. I hope your life will get better now that you've moved. I miss you.
