Suicide - Poem by Brooklyn Sorrow

So simple.

To good to pass up.

Small bottle of poison.
Poison wine.


Put me to rest.
Sweet suicide.

Often thought about.
I have to much despair.

Let me see them again.

The word in my head.
My only escape.
The word many dread.

This word,
My favorite.
So many options...

For Suicide...

    Hi Brooke - You can't be serious! The problem is - if you have the courage - suicide is easy. I have stood at the top of the Eiffel Tower and on the edge of the Niagara Falls all one had to do was JUMP! We have all contemplted it at sometime - 'Suicide so simple - Put me to rest - Sweet suicide'. Suicide is always linked to despair - but it is an escape - an easy way out 'Suicide - My favorite word - So many options - For suicide. In my experience Brooke - of dealing with failed suicides - it is often just a 'Cri de Coeur' the need for a little TLC. We love your poems B - they take us to the brink - but we love you as well and we are always there for you should you need us. Thsi is well structured and has great pathos and great flow - I scoe it TEN. Love you in Poetry - JOHN. . (Report) Reply

    This seems to speak up a lot, after reading your biography as well, it seems to hint other things. Suicide can be written about but not acted upon, no one deserves to fall to themselves, if that makes sense. I can relate.

    Glad to have this poem contributed here.
