My Descent Into Madness - Poem by Tamara Moir

I’m saying goodnight
My last goodbye
Maybe in another life
We will say hi

But before I do
I just want to know
One last question
Just before I go

How did you know
Behind my eyes
Sits a young girl
As she cries?

You once said you loved me
Now I know that was a lie
Would you even notice
If I were to die?

Let’s see shall we
Slit my wrists with a knife
And watch me bleed
Bleed away my life

But how did you know
Behind my eyes
Sits a young girl
As she cries?

I lay there dying
With no-one to care
No one in the world
Wishing they were there

There to stop my pain
As a lay there dying
There to help me live
As I sat there crying…

There is one more chance
Before I move that blade
For someone to save me
And help me fix the wrongs I’ve made

And how did you know
Behind my eyes
Sits a young girl
As she cries?

But I awake at this moment
And realize it was a dream
Now I live by the motto
Nothing is what it may seem
