Those moments
Between life and death
Too sad to live
And too self centered to end it.

I wish I could be afraid again.

Once a long time ago when I was about 10 years old and watching a movie with my mother...I believe i was African Queen.
I was very upset because the man on the boat was dying he had no more drugs (drug addict) and was going to commit suicide... I was so upset and I talked to my mother about it. Her response was "he is going to die either way." Not sure why your little poem brought back that memory... Then, she said...and perhaps this was later and, I was a bit older.. that committing suicide was a cowards way out... Strong words..which were so wise..
Enjoyed your poem,

This is interesting. Never thought that someone would want to ever feel afraid but I guess that's when happens when you contemplate life and death, feeling nothing within. It's particularly interesting when you wrote "too self centered to end it", I never thought about it like that, that people would be selfish to not end their life... very interesting write!

Oh my goodness, this is powerful.

that in between state of mind and heart....
I was there once, understood it...at least looking back, I think perhaps
I understood something....but sure felt a lot...maybe sometimes I wish I could be afraid again, as well.

This one has the sound of depression. Depressed people may not want to die, but they end it because they can't stand the pain anymore. The speaker here drew back from the abyss before it was too late. Call it self centered if you like, but to me it's simply choosing life.

Thank you so much- I don’t think it’s self centered all, actually. Just touching on personal emo.. read more
