sweet suicide
xXxXx

tears streaming down my face
 1
the pain too much to bare
 2
there's no one to run to
 3
no one that will care
 4
all my strength is lost
 5
my hope is gone
 6
my darkest hour is near
 7
will they mourn?
 8
i cut a little deeper
 9
i've got to see the blood
 10
it rushes out the fresh cut
 11
my beautiful crimson flood
 12
banging on my bathrrom door
 13
i see your scared face
 14
"i love you plase dont leave me"
 15
my heart begins to race
 16
what have i done
 17
it's too late now
 18
all i thought was my own pain
 19
i was just a slefish cow
 20
a tear falls to my cheek
 21
but it isn't mine
 22
you wipe your eyes
 23
and say it will b fine
 24
"we'll be together forever"
 25
he says as he smiles
 26
he grabs the bloody razorblade
 27
sitting on the tiles
 28
he slashes up his wrists
 29
and joins me on the floor
 30
our hearts stop beating in unison
 31
we'll be together for ever more
 32

This is an incredibly disturbing fantasy.  I say 'fantasy', because this whole scenario is un-real - it would never happen.  When I read lines like 20 and 24, I immediately think 'teen', and the rest appears to be the Author romanticizing their addiction to cutting.  Personally, I would have preferred a piece that elaborates on your initial despair, rather than the above, which reads like the writer is trying to manifest a true love that's super eager to share the madness.

Do you really think you are doing anything to help the state of adult's views of teenagers today if you write things like this? Granted, you may feel this way, but would it not be better to express your feelings in a more mature way? You really are just pandering to a steriotype here.

Spell check, even when you're in pain.  This is much too trite and cliched to be taken seriously as anything but EMO poetry.  There is nothing elegant, the spelling is very bad, the scenario is so typical, like a soft lying down and happiness in the great beyond.  Bodies don't die gently and it's not a pretty sight.

You could try to make this more poignant, less romantic, more raw pain and purpose but as it is, it's like 1,000 others here that don't make much of an impact anymore.

I stopped reading halfway through because it was just so ordinary and blah.  Not worth my time.
