I wrote this back in January of 2011. I was going through a severe depression. This isn't me anymore. I don't have these thoughts anymore.

Today, I think that I shall die,

I think this is where it ends,

Today I’ll take the life,

I cannot live at this expense.

Today, I know I’ll die because my heart is bleeding out,

I saw it in my eyes what this day is all about.

Today my skin will rip and my veins will tear,

And from my wrist to fingertips; my blood shall run to the there.

Today I have no interest in the breath triggered by my lungs,

And so my life I’ll take away leaving secrets on my tongue.

My life is damned because of the mind that I possess,

I beg please understand, I cannot live suppressed.

To set all my shadows free once and for all,

I will no longer be put against the wall.

I am the problem and I am to blame,

I’m who insanity calls out her name.
