Hello Life,
I've gotta say
There's something wrong tonight --
and there's no point carrying on.
Broken shards of glass
reflect the pain and multiply
the sharpness cuts through numbness --
causing pain,
O joyous pain.
And Life, I wonder why
it was me
you chose to suffer so.
With every bitter pill
to choke down with a sip
of hatred,
I aim to forget,
and be forgotten.
No longer lie to me --
It won't be fine.
I am not fine.
You are not fine...
I am small,
yet g r e a t is my storm
with lightning strikes
and thunder yells --
soul crushing hail
falling hard, fast.
Crush me.
Crush my soul.
Crush my lungs.
This bitter pill is kicking in
dizziness has overcome...
I am not fine.
Dear Life --

Sad topic...but well put together poem. I really like it. I mean the wording is just...whoa. But still sad.
