Painful Life

January 27, 2010
By Anonymous

It feels as if life has come to a halt
Your heart skips a beat
The flame of hope starts to get smaller

The warm droplet runs down your face uncontrollably
Your eyes more red by the second
Your head ready to burst with the overflowing pressure

One hand on top of the other
You think to yourself
Grasping for the breath of life

You need that person
The one you call a friend, a hope, an angel
But you are alone to fight

Slowly the ocean of red lava runs
You feel only the consolation of relief
You feel separated from the world

You are ready to let it all go
You are ready to end everything
But you can’t, and it hurts

It hurts to breathe
It hurts to feel
It hurts to live
