Just go and Die

Just go and Die

A Poem by Mariana Silva

A poem written after a pretty heavy day and plenty of fights with my sister


"Just go and die!"

I took the painful words to heart.

I picked up a kitchen knife

And I walked to her room.

"Just go and die!"

'Maybe that's what I should have done from the start...'

At her command, on her bed, I take my life.

Her bed, her room shall be my tomb.

"Just go and die!"

"If something happens to her, you're going to regret that"

"No I won't, I really do hope she dies!"

'Fine, guess I'm just a means to an end...'

I can't ignore the pain and I don't want to cry,

I want her to know exactly where I sat,

So she won't be able to hide behind lies,

About why I decided it was my time to end.

"Just go and die!"

In a river of bright red,

I end my life,

Because...I'm tired of no one caring...at all!


Even the good kids should be paid attention to...

Never surrender. I am not particularly fond of the suicide type poems because I am very against it to begin with after losing two friends that way. The poem itself is written well and deeply frustrating though. So two thumbs up for that. Kudos.

Love to read and write, so much in fact, there isn't a place where my journal and pen have not followed me because you never know when something will spring forth to be written. Not a prodigy but some.. more..
