16 (who?)
Water, so dark and deep
Pills we use for sleep

Fire, so burning and full of life
Or maybe a sharp metal knife

A gun, so deadly and beautiful
Alcohol makes you feel so dull

Love I can't feel
None of my feelings are real

I have become a shell of my former me
Blinded by darkness, I can't see

I have lost my life's spark,
I am swallowed by the dark

From my problems, I can't hide
So why not commit suicide?

But one question remain,
That I can't get out of my brain:

If I took a knife and split my head,
Would anyone weep for me when I am dead?

...Beautiful. The simplicity of this is what makes it so wonderful. I feel like I can relate to this, and maybe that's why it created such an impression on me. :)

Like a flame, you flicker when there's in pain, trying to make up one's mind you see? But don't blow it out just yet.

It won't be blown out just yet, I have to empty it of all stories trapped inside of it; they are caught there, chained in fear and depressions.

In poetry suicide is such a cliche subject, but I enjoy reading those things anyway. I liked how simple and 'common' the rhymes were, but they created a strong impression. ^^

Thank you.
Suicide is indeed a cliche, but it is very interesting to read about... :meow:

the emanating negative emotion is delicious,
If I asked would you tell me the story behind this poem?
Rosenrot93 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
Thank you! ^^
The reason I wrote this poem is that one of my friends here on dA have a friend that tried to commit suicide... So, you could say that this inspired me...
