STOP Suicide Poem

I wrote this poem because there are times I want to leave this world because at times I find it heartless. During my life I have had many challenges, I had a person in life that would torment me and abuse me thinking it was all a game and I have been close to ending my life because of this person, but what has kept me going was the person I love the most in life, if I were to commit suicide I would make sure I leave a letter saying how much I truly love him.

I Gave Up Life Because Of Your Game

default ©

Published: November 2013

Life is life
life I behold
I'm giving up
So I have been told
By the monster in my head
It talks to me
As I lay cold in bed

Music pounds my ears
Screams are all I hear
It's time to give up
This day I have not feared
Looking down I see the cuts on my wrist
"I'm emo" they say, I am ashamed of this

I grab paper and pen
I'll write my feelings for you, that I pretend
"I love you more then anything" I never admitted
And I'm sorry for this suicide I just committed

So I grab a rope
For so long I have hoped
My head goes through
I choke on my breath
And soon feel the cold of death

A shadow against the wall
Of my hanging body
My pain is gone, I feel nothing at all

I look at my pale face
My eyes will never be opened again
As I have left this place, decided that this was my faith

My soul has drifted away
No more cold nights of having to pray

I am free of pain
But I am also ashamed
That I gave up my life
Because of your game

This statement above the poem is really relatable to me!! I am in that exact situation. There are a few people I know who are fairly rude to me and make me feel really bad about myself, and then there is the one person in my life who flips this idea of hating myself. Every day, I go through this cycle of feeling awful to feeling peaceful, usually a full circle a few times a day.
