I am dead-


My soul is


I can barely sleep

when all I can think of

are the mistakes I've made.

I've made too many.

I've hurt too many.

I've faked too many


My heart is


I feel nothing but


How can I begin to have

hopes and dreams,

when they always are


My ears ring from the sound

of blood rushing through my viens.

Let my heart freeze over,

grant me my silence.

My skin is


Torn off my so-called

friends and loves.

Sliced apart by myself,

I'll never be good


Ripped away by those who

acted before thinking.

Don't judge when

you don't even know.

Only my mind remains,

enough to spit out a



I'm hanging on by a thread,

and it's time to fall.

I don't want to die,

but I just can't live

in this world, in this life.

Please remember me as I was

before I was


Please don't forget.

Guns go off,

the thread breaks,

And I am

nothing except



and raw.

@foreverhidion3 hey, I like your idea. I wont use it the exact same way, but I'll try to switch up the ending a little bit. Thank you for the suggestion :)
