I Died Today.

I Died Today.

A Poem by Elizabeth

Not a personal poem.


this is crazy.

release a breath and

say hello to death.


You never imagined

there’d be so much red,

is this hatred or love

pouring from My heart?

the blade hits the ground

while You release a sound

mixed from a scream and laugh.

are You crazy?

am I free?

is this how life’s meant to be?

left out of the loop,

Death didn’t think I’d

come home so soon,

but the red carpet is all laid out,

leading from my heart to

Your knife to Your clothes

all covered in My love.

My love or Your anger

or our madness,

My last breaths will be filled

with a single thank You

for holding My hand as I leave

this body You no longer wanted.

am I crazy?

I think You’re free.

no more love from you to me.


yet You still ripped the knife

out of My hands as I fell,

why would You stab Yourself in the chest?

laughter bubbles in My throat,

He could never understand.

You were My world,

but You decided I was no longer

Yours to hold, to love, to mold

into whatever the hell You wanted me to be.

I went crazy,

and didn’t want You to leave.

there was only one choice for Me.

stop, please, I want You to stay.

no, no, this ends today,

I loved You but the time to

move on is now.

You’re crazy.

the world is hazy,

freedom is Ours.

I died today.
