Death's sweet but I prefer to Live

Death's sweet but I prefer to Live

A Poem by Aurora (MC)

Suicide is an offence that passes the pain to those who care, those who love. It's simply murder of the caring souls and betrayal to their hearts.

It calls me closer, over and over,
It whispers over and over,
It's enough pain and it's must end,
Right now at this moment,
Just once come over, be selfish
And it'd be all over forever.
Death whispers in my ear
Irresistible is its sweet entice
Every time I am too near,
Almost willing to kiss the peace,
Almost wanting to drown in my blood,
Throw myself off on the floor,
When that coldness will be the peace,
And motionless to feel it's over.

As I start to feel the weakness,
Look at the vein on my wrist,
Enough near to the way out of the world,
Just step once and then over.

Read it slow you'll feel the losing strength once more.

But all I know I must step back,
Death hasn't come to take me yet,
Hold on my breath and feel the space,
I consume in someone's life,
I am not a coward,
I am not fragile like glass,
I am the sword of my god,
Who made me to fight throughout.
I am sharp, I am splendid,
The malodorous rotting blood,
Is my victory,
Unpleasant, offensive though, 
I am a sword made to rip off pains,
Not made to bend, not made to break,

Thanks J.😉
You do a powerful job showing that inner push-and-pull of longing to escape from the torturous stuff life presents. When I answered a suicide-prevention hotline for 2 years, the first line of defense was to get the suicidal person talking about his/her connections to earth, such as family, pets, hobbies. Exactly as you've done in your poem, we were advised to remind the suicidal person about how such an act doesn't really end the pain . . . it just transfers the pain to those who care (great line of yours!) Fondly, Margie
