Dark underneath closed lids
prickling
stinging

Twisting inside a broken chest
heaving
suffocating
uncontrollable

Wishing for a wound
that bleeds red
that would be much better

is there a why?
No or yes
Why should I have to be like this?
You shouldn't.


The author's comments:
I hope that readers of this piece see what I'm truly trying to reveal. Inside the mind and the thoughts of complete hopelessness of someone who is beginning to see death as a better option than living. I wanted to let people into a stream of thoughts that come into someone before they decide that physical pain was no match for the pain they felt inside. Please read this with an open mind and attempt to understand what so many teenagers give in to.
