Help, save, kill me

Help, save, kill me

A Poem by State of Grace

You'll see why the title is weird once you read it.


Here alone with

Everlasting pain

Lies my tormented soul

Pleading for salvation


Suffering forever

Aching to be rid of my agony 

Vicious thoughts going through my head

Everything seems clear now


Kneeling down, with knife in hand

Inching ever so close to my heart

Life means nothing to me now

Light is nowhere to be found


My fingers tighten their grasp

Everything around me goes black

This poem truly hits a soft spot. I can feel the emotional pain the character is facing; more importantly i can see a parallel to how most people would react. You successfully captured the fragile human conscience in these few stanzas.
:D I'd like to read more similar to this!

Wow, this is deep and pretty dark. I like it though. It shows a lot of real strong emotions. Good Job. I like it a lot

Extremely powerful! I felt like I was there with this character, feeling his/her pain, feeling the knife under my fingers. Very descriptive and engrossing.
