Embracing Darkness

Happy times always seem to fail
waves wash away the innocence of the veil
we're forced to look behind us
remembering all the regrets
and memories that weigh on our shoulders
we look as pain becomes
a common occurence
love is ripped from the heart
and sewn back in again
only to find it's not the right needle
we put an icepack on our heart
and hope that someone will see your pain
hope that someone will make you better
but everyone leaves
not even throwing back a goodbye
you're left alone again
drowning in your misery and blood
you find it so hard to breathe
you reach out but grasp no one's hand
all you snatch is the cold,cruel air
as you slowly bleed to death
your memories start to choke you
wrapping its long.wispy,unfeeling arm
around your neck you begin to suffocate
you crawl towards the glinting knife
using the last strength you have
you quietly slit your throat
the darkness envelopes you
and you embrace it

The author's comments:
The point I am trying to get across with this poem is that you never know how a person is feeling on the inside because everyone has thier secrets, so you should always love everybody to the full extent and make thier lives worth living, because you never know how long it's going to be.
