The Simple End

Blissfull silence,
slowly fading into the dark.
A simple end, the one unseen by us.
It stalks us everyday, silent but always there.
But then, it strikes.
The one thing we used to fear is now what we crave.
Beep, beep, beep, silence.
It's the simple end.
The pain is gone,
the anger is gone,
the saddness, is gone.
With ice in your veins and an empty heart,
its what you wanted for so long.
It's finally here,
your slowly fading away, like the sun, dieying towards night.
We all want that simple end.
but is it the simple end, or a new beggining?

The author's comments:
I thought about how it could feel to die and how things could be easier. The song Suicidal thoughts by Biggie Smalls inspired me to write this. Its probably my darkest poem so I dont know how I feel about it.

This is a good start, especially since you're new to writing. The first part was a wee bit redundant, and there was also a spelling problem and the end (dieying) but the end was really powerful. Keep writing, and make sure you read a lot of poetry to help shape your style. Good luck!
