Okay, I edited it and made some changes so that it wouldn't get taken off this time. Hope it works...
Down in the depths
I lay here—paralyzed.
Not being able to move,
But feeling all the pain in me.
My neck aches and my wrists burn,
All the emotional pain in me…
Wanting to scream its way out.
But I shouldn’t let it out, “keep it in.”
I felt myself sinking into the sidewalk,
My heart yelling at the people around me.
I see the knife just two feet away,
And my fingers grasp it for relief.
The blade against my skin feels cold,
Almost refreshing from the heat of day.
My mind goes blank for almost a second,
but I can't do it and the knife drops to the cold cement.
There's got to be another way,
another way to deal with all this pain.
Please will someone help me find myself,
and help me remember how being "happy" is...
Somewhere on another sidewalk
another person lay's just like me,
hurting and wanting a way out.
I'll find them...and we can help each other.
these broken pieces of my heart are to shattered to be put back together again
