Read the title.


Death isn't an escape

But it does sound enticing.

It's more like a glowing exit sign

To a bad movie

That still isn't quite bad enough 

For me to want to leave.

The drugs don't help eiher

The just misspell "EXIT"

And make it into an "ENTER"

Which sounds fairly tempting

I try to call for help, but nobody wants to listen

I try to call for help, but nobody wants to listen

I try to call for help, why won't they fucking listen?

Sporadic are my thoughts

Between survival and self-destruction

It builds up, like hard water on a faucet

And explodes like hot glass thrown into the snow

Leaving behind a shattered remnant

Of a man who wanted to be something

Who wanted to BE

 

Fuck you world.

While I understand your point before you make it, I believe that you have completely missed the point of this poem, and therefore do not feel the need to explain to you why I have used profanity in this piece. Thank you.

An almost continuous struggle, Sky, between surviving and not. Help, or what is offered, tends to miss the point of the problem completely. Keep writing it out and don't give in.

It's almost inevitable that that those who offer help will avoid the problem or ignore it altogether. Often times, even when the struggle is laid out in front of them. Perhaps it's the awkwardness of dealing with it or perhaps they don't want to seem inadequate. In psychology class, we've learned that often times those who are struggling do not need advice, they simply want a good listener. In this case, maybe it's acknowledgement? I'm uncertain of my own disposition.

Nice work, although it's a bit sad/depressing. Well written I could actually envision what I was reading.

Thank you very much. I'm trying my best to get better with my descriptive writing.

Nice work, although it's a bit sad/depressing, I too know those feelings but this was great. Well written I could actually envision what I was reading.
