Want Death

This poem was written by me some time ago before a self-harm episode, it is about my feelings then, which have changed since. I don’t know how many of you would relate but it’s like an insight to my, a teen’s, mind.

Here it goes

The knife’s lying close by

And all I have to do is cut… hard

I could get up, I could try

But life has had me just too much

When all is dark, all is cold

I wish I could smile

But everything that I’ve been told

Every word of it is a lie

Death is such atempting home

It almost feels familiar now

Now I’ve learnt, now I know

That it’s all I ever want

Let me get some sleep tonight

Let me have some peace of mind

Let me kiss my demons and

Let me fly out of this life…
