"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf

A pool of blood,

Surrounds me,

A horror scene,

For all to see.

Wounds cover me,

From head to toe,

Telling stories new and old.

I've been beaten, 

I've been bruised,

And it all started,

The day I left you.

Now I draw,

My final breath,

Looking up,

To see the light at last.

This talks about that when you feel overwhelmed with sadness and loss you just give up and make it your choice to die. Comment please!

"A word is dead
When it is said
Some say.
I say
It just begins to live
That day."
--Emily Dickenson

But death is not freedom because you leave people behind and you don't know what's ahead. Death is not a reasonable escape from life. So I guess...we're stuck with life.
