Nearly Gone

Poem By Ash Tear

why does this dreadful thing they call life have to go on
and right in front of me sits a knife
it sits there taunting me
saying end your life with me plz plz
okay i agree i'll do it
i take the knife
and slice my inner elbow open with one movement
as it bled my smile grew
my fingers ran thru the puddle of blood
i giggled a childish sound
my mom heard this sound and checked
she screamed
i got confused why is she scream i wondered
she pick up her phone and dialed 911
they came and made the bleeding stop
i screamed a tormented sound
why did she save me i'll just do it again i thought

Mental Heartbreak

Is the pain of a heart break really or just mental?

Is the hole in your chest really there or just mental?
Did they really take your heart break it or is that just mental?

Been To Strong For To Long

I cried curled up in my mother's lap.
Does giving up mean you're weak I asked.
In you case it means you've been too strong for too long she repied.
she's right I've been to strong for too long.
