Suicide Sad But True - Poem by Jeremy Gibbs

The voices make you blue
This is sad but true
Now suicide is waiting for you
This is sad but true
Pills seem to be the way now
This sad but true
The bottle is waiting
This is sad but true
What are you to do
This sad but true
Now you swallow all but two
This is sad but true
As your skin turns blue
This is sad but true
Your friend breathes into you
This is sad but true
How did this not work for you
This is sad but true
You just wanted to die too
This is sad but true
Maybe next time will do
This is sad but true
You pray the knife will cut you into
This is sad but true
What they have done to you
This is sad but true
Now this will have to do
This sad but true
Now it is done for you
This is but true

Jeremy

    wow. i can well relate. the only recommendation is don't say this is sad but true so many times, it takes away from the story inside the poem and its very repetitive and the eyes get easily bored. other than that fantastic[3 (Report)Reply

    Thanks Jeremy, for such a wonderful remark 'the voice makes u blue'.It may sound sad and true to know that even a such condition, you have only one saviour 'HOPE' (Report)Reply
