Suicide: a Convoluted Comfort

April 24, 2011
Break yourself
Let out a sigh among the wreck
Pick up the shattered remains
Don’t care if they cut the flesh
Don’t care if the blood stains what had once been
It doesn't make a difference
All alone in the rabbit hole
With no white rabbit in sight
The world is up there
But the sobs echoing off the emptiness
Reach their ears too late
A convoluted comfort
The knife glints in the darkness
And all because the misstep that made you fall
Was just an illusion
