Poetry By: jack diamond

this is not a cry for help, I'm not planning to shoot myself, I'm just really depressed.

Hide my eyes from the world, and all those who would see

Mask over face,

They'll then let me be

I have to hide,

Can't show this time

I'll run from�their arms

To get lost in my rhyme

This time it's too much

I'm too stupid, I'm scared

I'm simply inadequate

Outdone when compared

My knees start to buckle,

Under such weight

I'm lost and alone

Giving way to self hate

I feel like I'm stuck in a race I can't run

Stuck in a black empty void with no sun

The great expectations, the loss and the pain

They are simply relentless

They chase until I'm slain

I give way to depression

With bad thoughts in mind

They are of lethal nature

They're the killing kind

A familiar idea,

Arrives in my head

This will all go away,

If I end up dead

They'll give me a service

So the preacher can lie

All the people who loved me,

Will just sit and cry

I think of the beautiful, scarlet cascade

The end of my pathetic, life-long charade

Now approaching,

Is my self inflicted doom

One last breath,

Here we go…
