Mental Health

The fire burns my flesh,
scorching my inner-being.
Leaving marks that go un-noticed,
never to be shown.
The pleasure of the pain is unwavering,
it saves me from myself.
It's better than the alternative,
of which I've considered a true option,
selfish as it may be.
Every time I take my pills in the morning,
or drive my car down US-19.
I know I have enough bottles to find the darkness.
Or I could just press down on the gas,
drive head on into traffic.
Take out as many with me as possible,
and end their suffering too.
I wish I could take the cowards way out.

  • I just think you need a friend who can love you unconditionally.You sound a little lonely but that's okay we all feel lonely sometimes.Poems are a great way to express your emotions also, so don't stop writing.Your clearly not that crazy because you are rational and not taking the cowards way out.

  • that is very much a cry for help when you write stuff like that!!!!!! if you are considering this stuff and it is real and not some idiot trying to start stuff then go get help. you need to be in a place where they can counsel you and give you the help you need to stop thinking those thoughts. good luck

  • I used to cut (not burn) and I attempted overdoses many times - once was almost the kicker.
    I've been in and out of psych hospitals for a good part of a year and on various medications that never worked.
    The only treatment that finally worked for me was ECT.
    Please, seek some help before you act on your suicidal thoughts sweetie.
    Take it from someone who has been there and understands.
