Fading Away

Life bleeds away from me, Every drop, a fading memory. Twinges of pain, oozing from my wrists, A dialogue within, oh the misery. Confidence saps from every pore, Wretchedness and dismay remains. A hollow shell encasing my spirit, Depression, my heartbeat wanes. Lemons of life, a bitter fruit, Squeezed on the open wounds, burning. Trapped […]

The vampire steals through the night, Mists part ever so slow, Feeding […]

Mandatory Suicide

Soft sounds of water lapping in your tub, The candles burn, sweet smells divine, Lay back, relax with some wine, The end will come, soon you will die. Cut your wrists up, watch the bleeding, Diffusion of blood, the water turns red, Close your eyes, swallow all the pain, Doesn’t matter now, for soon you […]
