Uncertainty;

 

The sun falls, the moon rises.

Eyes to the wall, chest tightens.

 

Mind races with thoughts unspoken

Feelings simply a token

Pills looking pleasant

Fingers trembling, insistent

Worries flurry, everything blurring

Hand reaching, pills screeching

Head spinning, fingers itching

Mind screaming,

Begging,

Pleading.

Just do it.

End it.

Feel the relief

Let them find you deceased—

 

Stop.

Wait.

Breath.

 

Bottle drops, pills clatter.

Uncertainty peeks in,

Asks to enter,

I let it in.

 

We speak for hours.

 

The moon falls.

The sun rises,

 

She helps me live another day,

She is full of surprises
