The now illegible words on this paper,
Swim in the inky tears.
I didn't want to relive this nightmare,
Another letter will seem to take years.

I want to smile,
I want speak out,
I don't want to be helpless and I don't want to drown.

But I'm in to deep,
At the point of no return,
There's no coming back,
And the tears,
The tears really burn.

I throw the paper away,
Give it another go.
This is the last time anyone can know.

No more sunshine,
No more music,
No more friends and school,
No more dreams,
No more hopes,
They have all been washed away in the storm.

The now illegible words on this paper,
Swim in the inky tears.
I don't want to keep reliving this nightmare,
Another letter will seem to take years.

Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

Procrastinating suicide is good,
Letting it get that far
Is not.

Depression shouldn't be pushed aside. Don't let your hurting go unheard. Get help, talk to someone, don't avoid help.

Thank you. I was watching one of those depression commercials, and I thought of this. I'm glad that time in your life is over now, it couldn't have been fun.

Oh my goodness, this reminded me of something that happened to me freshman year... I wrote a poem/lyrics about it, expressing my feelings.. This piece really touched me.
