Life is a knife
Stuck in us all
The more we remove it
The farther we fall
Keep my hand on the handle
Just twist it a bit
Feel my lungs just tremble
Coughing Fit
My breath is a whisper
The pain is a scream
No one is listening
Don’t get what I mean
My legs were just shaking
I fall on my knees
All you people just stab me
A thousand bees
I plunge the knife deeper
Your raising the blade
Sunshine is fading
You welcome the shade
The blade swings
I dodge it, And fall
My death isn’t noticed
Uncared for by all


The author's comments:
This piece wasn't inspired by suicide but rather by stress. It's a bit deeper than it's face value I'd say because there's a decent amount of symbolism.. (I think that's the word..)

Another master piece my friend :) great work and it's like those people betrayed you and stabbed you but you dodge the knife and let yourself go instead

I dance like I live life, full out.

Dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt.
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

What is your connection with bee metaphors? The peice is great but honey, maybe you could add in a whole lot more descriptive words if ur not only trying to rhyme. Also, don't say "just" so much. Really amazing work thp

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.

i love this. love u rr.

Written with such emotion! It sounded as if it was written by Robert Frost himself, it just flowed so smoothly. I give it a six out of five :P.

It's funny how you say that about the forced part! When I was writing i was just trying to make it flow right; not rhyme! Anyway I hope you ditch the stress soon! :D
