Simply Slipped

Gone astray to a broken bridge
Letting my mind wander and my legs dangle
Fighting the urge to drop below
Temptation overwhelms my frigid limbs, numb with pain
One step away from the end
A wicked thought pushed to the cliff's edge
Ready to force out the life,
Stomp out the jealousy, take out the spark
Steady for just a single moment
Alive and breathing for once in my life
Make the death blow quietly away
Take my dreams into a jar, securely closed
Slip into the ice of another place
Leave this cruel world with one more word
Forget the past and the future
Live in what they believe is the present
Suck in the last breath, LIFE
Exhale...and jump because this is the beginning

Thank you!!! I tried to make it as real and deep as possible. Like I said I've never been through something like this but I can only imagine.

this is very good and i, being someone who often thinks this way, think u have captured the thoughts perfectly. life gives us many hard times but i am happy to say that i personally am glad that i was/am able to make it through everyday without taking my thought's actions and i hope nobody has to go through this, though i know many do.

Thank you very much. I am glad that you liked it and have made it past your hardships. I have never been through something like I displayed in the poem but I know how it must feel. Again thank you:)
