OC Poems and Suicide Note
Darkness covered the light
No time to be scared of the night.
Darkness flowed over my skin
I knew this is where it all ends.
No one to save you know
Your time is done my child.
Eyes open one last time
Dark hands covered my eyes
My time is done.
No more happy face to see
Now only sad and depress as I can
Everyone ask “Are you alright?”
I smile saying “I’m all right”, but
The blade digging in me won’t let up
Now that I know no one will save
me at all
This is the end
The end of me my good old friend.
A gun to the head
Is easy to end your life.
Feeling a knife piercing your
Skin is always enough.
Having no one to talk to
Ends your life.
Depression kills your life.
Suicides the sister of depressions life.
No one to save you know,
Your time is up you fat cow.
Don’t ask anyone for help,
They don’t’ want to waste
their breath yet.
Goodbye, hope to see you
But in the end, again will never be
the same without you my friend.
Suicide Awareness Information
Suicide is a subject dealt with in many ways in this society, from portrayals in the media, in films and television dramas, to comic presentations on Adult Swim or Fox.
But the written word seems to reign as the place for people to express their feelings, fears, passion and intent. Poetic license is paramount for poets, creative writers, and even journalists. Take the recent coverage of the 14-year-old Wisconsin teen who, after her last dance at her prom, wanted to die, and, died Sept. 22 of her disease. Her short life was Facebook and news fodder for months.
Ironically, she died from her illness days after National Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 5-11. The phrase #StopSuicide was created by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to call attention to the voices, rumors, mis-information and need for education about suicide, which strikes all ages and gender.
The most perplexing issue with suicide is knowing when a warning sign or risk factor is “real” for someone. Media – books, film, poetry, etc. – often shine a light on an often taboo topic.
If you or someone you know is in crises, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
