Just One Second

I know that if I give you a bottle of pills or a blade,
Without thinking you will hurt yourself.
I know this has been hard for you,
It was for me too.
And I know that the only thing you want to do now is to erase the feeling of emptiness from you mind and scream,
And I know because you can't scream,
You will cut your flesh and watch it bleed.
Your blood will flow and cry the tears that you didn't even know.
You will feel good for that one moment you didn't think.
But do think. For just one second, think.
Drop the blade.
Throw away the bottle of pills.
Say f*** it.
The breath that you lost when you realised this was it,
Regain it.
And for just once, live through it

I've been through a similar situation, this poem really captured how difficult it is to be dealing with mental illness.
