It calls me closer, its calls me near
"Just once and it'll be over"
Death whispers in my ear
Irresistible is its sweet entice
Staring down, which one to slice,
I observe my previous tries
My unseen hurt and earlier cries
No peace in my mind, no peace in my head
The quiet intelligent me, long since fled
Anger and rage consumes me
My minds demons bursting to be free
The walls of my cage finally cave
"Just be still, just be brave"
I slash down with an improvised knife
"Forget this world, forget my life"
Blood oozes and drips down the drain
A slight tingle but no real pain
A Calmness comes over me
My last attempt please, it's got to be
"Screw everyone, that's made me into this"
The very same people who I'm going to miss
Tears stream down my cheek,
My head feels heavy, I get dizzy and legs go weak
Darkness surrounds me, I get a glimpse of the abyss
I embrace the darkness, then hear a shriek...
Blankness, no sound
I feel my body drifting
I hear scraping
Something's stirring around
I can hear creatures shifting
I hear a scream
I hear a moan
I want my family
I'm all alone
I hear a cry
I hear a sob
And realize it's my own
I know I have sinned
Still I pray to God
"Please get me out of this hell"
I start to yell...
No sound out of my mouth
only my mind
No one to help me
No one for me to find
I've never felt so scared....
My soul finally
Screamed and despaired
"I give up..."
