This poem is not truly about ending your own life. It is about being so confused with so many people telling you that you'll never be something. It is about how I felt when I thought every one had turned their back on me. It is mostly about giving up and feeling as though you have lost the battle.
This is dedicated to my cat.

On the brink of eternity
I waited
Thinking
Forever I will stay
I was so close to the edge
I could smell death
It consumed me
Knowing nothing could pull me back
I prepared to jump
I wanted so badly
To just disappear
From the scorn
Torment
And worst of all
Disappointment
I waited for something
Anything
To pull me back
I started sinking
Too deep
I couldn’t raise my head
Above the black water
I knew I could
Be strong enough
To swim
To back away
But the strength
Avoided me
I thought nothing could ever
Help me
Save me
I knew that this was the end
A cynical game life
A psychological problem
Without a cure
I knew that I was being stupid
Hasty
But I couldn’t bring myself to wait
One more gruelling day
Filled with pain
Of all people looking at me
Thinking
“What’s wrong with her?”

That’s when he came
To the rescue
My knight in shining armour
My life jacket
My something to hold
I knew he was the one for me
For he knows only unconditional love
And instinct
He never judges
He never lies
As long as he gets lots of
Attention
And
Food
He will sit on my lap and purr

I need no more stupid pills
I need no more alcohol
I need no more quick fixes
That only make the problem worse
I only need him

My darling cat
Who saved my life
So many times

And now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord my soul to keep. And if I die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take.

Wonder from where you keep finding all that inspiration, to write so many nice works.
Good job
