This is a poem I wrote with full intention of doing what I described but as you can see when you read it I calmed down by the end and saw sense.

Romeo and Juliette?
Nothing felt better than the warm, crimson river flowing down her arm,
The knife in her hand was not her enemy but her best friend.
There were deep rivers running down her throat,
Down her wrists yet she did not scream,
She sat and silently cried.
No one was home, no one was there to ease her pain,
Even if she had not been alone she would have felt it.
Her family don’t care they ignore her,
Her friends don’t really understand
So she sees no real reason to live.
No concerned about stopping the blood flow
She deeply cuts a vein, this time she screams,
The pain is unbearable yet she carries on cutting.
Just when you think she’s going to stop and see sense
She goes one step further and plunges her bleeding wrists into boiling water.
She’s overcome by sheer agony and can’t stand anymore,
The waters so hot and the bloods flowing so fast she knows she won’t last long.
To make sure there was no chance of being rescued she drove the knife deeply into her heart and collapses on the floor.
A crimson pool quickly formed around her,
A symbol of her regret and betrayal.
Her ex walks in and finds his love lying dead on the floor,
Her feelings for her never faded, time only made them stronger.
The poor grief stricken man couldn’t think straight,
He took the knife from the corpse of his love
And takes his own life so he can be with her.
Hopefully in death they will be happy.

that was amazing, intense, super good, i love that you brought an interesting testimony to a classic, i always thought that the classic love suicide was beautiful, but this way, it seems different, like a mistake, twistedly beautiful and amazingly intriguing.

To think that you were going to actually do that... It made me envision every bit of it with more care than there would normally be. Deep, passionate, and perfect. Love it.
