I Give Up- Poem

1.6K 68 1

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...

Then nothing....

Blankness, no sound

I feel my body drifting

I hear scraping

Something's stirring around

Surrounding me

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..."
