So Cold

by WintersAngel   Apr 15, 2013


The light is dim here.
Screams are heard in the distance.
Knives and razors float in the wind.
People take them with no resistance.

It's so cold here.
The river next to you is blood.
Wonders of happiness escape you.
Black rain takes over the flood.

The days are numbered here.
People die because they can.
Everything is done by choice.
A simple twitch of the hand.

It's so scary here.
Nightmares keep you awake.
Overdose is the town beside Bleed Out.
The rain there is pills, more than enough for you to take.

The fear is non existent.
Death is something no one is afraid of.
They know the price for suicide.
They know there's no such thing as love.

It's time to go now.
Death has beckoned you.
You've been here all of 2 days.
And already they knew.

    This is a great poem! I love how the first four stanzas repeated "here," it gives an interesting new perspective on depression-- that it is more than just emotion, your mind is in an entirely different place. I also like how you used short sentences for each line, it really speaks to the spirit of depression.
