Emo Poem

I found this poem in my old diary during my darkest days and look back on it and wish I had never found such a dark place but I was so curious and vulnerable that it was hard to stay away.

Suicide Notes


Published: March 2012

Dear Mother,
I'm sorry for the bother
I promise I'll be good
I promise everything will be as it should
I'm proud to say I'm gone
Writing suicide notes and so on
I never really understood life
But maybe I should
Emo fag, Scene kid drag,
Playing with the knife on my wrist
Is just simple practice
I'd hate to be you and father when you find this
I realize if I'm dead,
Everything I wrote in here will be in your head
Just to let you know
What's on my mind
Writing suicide notes all the time
Never having the guts to try

I cut so much. I told my bestfriend he told me to stop I did for a week and I went back, I told him he asked me why, I told him that I was so scared I didn't know what to do, all I wanted to do was cry and die, he told me to stop, he told me to tell him everything, I tried, I tried but I couldn't, I cried, I cried so much every night everyday, I tell him everything is fine but its not, he told Me that he is always there for me when I need him, I can do this, I need to end my life before I end his, I need to stop lying to him, it's killing him and its killing me.

Hi this is Thomas I'm a new person on this website and I just want to say you're not alone. I never wrote a suicide note but I have tried I would cut on my arms and I would just make it deeper. so you're not alone.
