This is a poem about someone pondering why they are alive and whether to commit suicide.

What is the point of living?
When I have no hope,
No happiness or love?
Why is the only thing that helps
Making deep crimson rivers in
My arms, in my waist?
I feel so down, so depresses
And I see no way out.
This is a never ending gloom
To which I am forever doomed.
I need to cut
Deeply, painfully
Not just that but
I want it all to end
I want nought but death.
I slash at my wrists,
Warm crimson rivers become waterfalls.
The pain is unbearable but
Somehow it makes me feel better.
I’ve done it, I’ve done it,
I’ve cut deep enough,
I’m going to die.
Goodbye forever.

Thanks my depression/ bipolar and paranoia tend to help with stuff like this. I guess it's all they're good for.

wowie! love it! as usal! very deep! i write suicdel poetry, but all my "freinds" make fun of it...
if you have ever thought about suicide, and think u will think about it again, no that ur a GREAT writer, and stay alive to share ur feelings w/ the world, because even pain can be beautiful

yes I have thought about suicide. I've attempted to kill myself 50 or so times over the past couple of years and I probably will consider it again. I always scare myself out of it when it comes to it though so there is nothing to worry about I shall be writing for a long time yet. And yes pain can be beautiful
