Dead and Gone

November 16, 2009

My hands laced over your chest,
Yours around the blade.
I say "I love you,"
You look away.

Time continues,
But never slows.
I wish I could tell you
What nobody knows.

You lift your arms,
And turn to me.
Cover my body
So no one will see.

The blade is sharp,
But the pain is weak,
compared to the lies you told to me.

Time continues,
Though I'm dead and gone.
My body lays there,
'Till the break of dawn.

The author's comments:
I wrote this a few years back when I was dealing with my dad moving away for work and criticism at school. I felt that I had nobody to listen to me and so I resorted to cutting myself in order to feel better. Truthfully, it didn't do any good, but I thought everyone should know how people feel when they go through these sort of things. If you have a friend who's doing this, please... lend an ear and let them know you care. You could save a life.
