Love Is Hard - Poem by vickie fuhriman

My heart has been torn and divided!
I don't know what way to turn,
For the one I love most is so very far,
I find the need to want to die,
But to tell you the truth,
I dont really know why.
I want the cuts on my arms,
To just go a bit too deep,
One of these times,
And watch the blood fall to the floor,
Slowly closing in around me.
Death would come to me,
Just not quite soon enough...

    You are embracing death instead of life and are exchanging sorrow for joy. This sentence is self inflicted and shamefully selfish. Stop it! It is not art. A picture of a dead fish no matter how masterfully done is not art. Give me the living fish, not the carcass in the trash can. Get out of the gutter, the sewer, the self loathing, the pity party. No one will come to your aid, but only your funeral. You have to stop it. All this talk of self mutialtion and suicide sets a bad example for others and encourages them to waste their lives as well. Take this criticism and use it to motivate yourself to put yourself to the task of being productive. To live is to suffer, but do so gracefully with purpose. Strive to live fully with dignity. There is already too much sorrow in the world. You can pursue happiness, and perhaps you will find it. But, you won't if you give up before you start. (Report) Reply
