The Ultimatum

Red teary eyes
Blue dreary skies
I’m weak and diminished
Wishing life had finished
Struggling to hold
What I can’t control
Tears that feel like blood
Boom goes a sudden thud
My head bangs the wall
In the bathroom stall
As I’m hurt in the corner
Feeling like a goner
Joy of mine is confined
In a prison called my mind
I’ve been in a scary ordeal
Having lost track of what’s real
All I can do is just feel
Emotional scars that won’t heal
As my heart turns to frost
With all hope being lost
The price of life has frozen
So now I have finally chosen
That my life should be tossed
Because death is free of cost
