Better Off ... Me?

August 10, 2016

My jaws locked,
And I'm grinding my teeth.
My heart ran off,
Somewhere overseas.
I don't know,
To whom I can turn.
The demon is here again,
But I'm not scared cause we are friends.

My head screams,
And I feel so alone.
I feel the pain cutting through,
Straight to the bone.
Look at my actions.
Why am I still here?
I'd be better off dead,
Than living in fear.

My hands tremble,
I can't tie the rope.
Just giving up,
I lost my hope.
I don't blame them,
It's nobody's fault.
But I don't want to try again,
My life feels like it's all pretend.

I couldn't do it,
So I sit here and cry.
I've lost my mind,
And I wish I would die.
So I lie down.
Wait for death to arrive.
But it isn't that easy,
Cause guess who's still alive.

I wrote this during one of my dark nights alone with my thoughts. Life can get hard. It often seems like it's too much to handle. But as long as you keep pressing on day after day, you will find that it wasn't as bad as it seemed.
