Searching For Sweet Relief

Poetry By: AshleyRose

A poem describing the feeling of being alone, helpless and desperate.

There is no reality

only a world built in lies,

or maybe it's me.

Am I real or just a figure of mind?

I'm numb and my heart is frozen cold

Alone in this world.

I turned my head

and saw the knife

It's glistening blade

glittered dangerously,

but it appealed to me.

Seducing me.

I don't know what came over me,

maybe I was desperate

to feel so something... anything...

because the next thing I know

is that there is blood on my arms.

I expected the pain to come,

might have even longed for it,

but there was none.

I was denied of emotions,

even denied of pain

and so I asked myself again,

when will I taste my sweet relief?

When will I be freed?

but as usual, there was no answer provided.

I am on my own.
