       It isn't how they say,
 when you try IT.
        Your face is cold and white,
 your hands tremor slightly
        and your stomach gurgles in
 revolting bites.
        You wriggle up your toes,
 and you bite your chapped, bloody lips.
   "Goodbye.."
        You whisper to yourself
 as you swallow pill after pill.
        The capsules burst like grape seeds,
 grape seeds full of acetaminophen,
        and your eyes criss-cross jagged red lines.
 You look at the clean, unwrinkled paper,
        your suicide note.
 What does yours say?
        Mine says that I've been saved,
 saved from death by death.
        He hugged me to his bosom
 and he made me okay again,
        okay for the night anyway.

Suicide- Dedicated to Hectorby TheSword-TheFaith

Literature / Poetry / Emotional / Free Verse©2012-2014 TheSword-TheFaith
Poem- Me
Cover photo- ~Biofist

Tonight I almost did it, I had three pill bottles dumped out on my desk and I was going to take them all. And Hector (~evilbrainangelheart) convinced me not to, I owe him my life. And this poem's for him.
Love you, broseph.

Glad you didn't do it, but I'm hoping that goes without saying.

No matter how bitter life tastes, there are always sweets hidden within. <3

I don't think there's anything anyone can do to help me.

"I'll dissolve when the rain pours in,
when the nightmares take me,
I will scream with the howling wind.
It's a bitter world, I'd rather dream."

This song kind of explains how I feel when I get depressed. It's true, the world is bitter, but there are ways to escape it, other than suicide. I applaud your friend Hector and I am glad you are still here. I feel as though "Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there."

Stay strong.
