All On A Silent Night

Published: November 2010

On a silent night.
I lay in the dark, not caring, trying not to breathe.
It's almost time, time to say goodbye.
Never again will I shout in pain.
Never again will I scream in vain.
I'm done with these feelings I can't control.
There is no more time to make amends.
No more time to fix everything.
My time is finally up.
I lay silently.
In the dark, alone.
Never moving, never speaking.
Not making a single sound.
I don't want to hurt anyone.
The people I love are better without me.
This is what I think, for now.
I put the blade to my wrist.
Cutting deeper, and deeper.
The blood flows, and I slowly slip away.
Consciousness fades.
The pain finally ends.
Only to begin again.
I look back as I float away.
Look at the pain, on their faces.
The pain, as they discover my body.
The pain that will be there, forever.
It tears my heart in two.
To watch them, as they cry.
Cry over me.
More pain, even in death.
I thought it was the end.
But I guess there is no escape.
From this much pain.
Never an escape.
I hurt those I love.
And I realize, that was what was hurting me.
But now its to late.
I ended it, forever.
There is no going back.
Their pain is endless.
I caused it, my fault, forever.
All on that Silent night.

My 14 year old son hung himself almost two years ago. I know he did this so he would be in no more pain he just wanted to be free and happy not knowing the hurt and pain it would cause me. He's in no more pain but mine continues everyday. I know he's being bullied no more, he's smiling now, he can dance around and be who he wants to be....rest in paradise Phillip

My 14-year-old has been going through a lot and talking about how nobody loves him, which is not true. He says he has no friends and there’s no point anymore, so it pains me to see him like that. When I ask him about it, he shuts down.

I just lost a friend the other night, she was 19 and she hung herself. I wish she knew that life gets better and how much pain we are now in that we will not see her again, maybe it would have made a difference...RIP KLL xoxoxo
