The Word

by Just Sierra   Mar 13, 2005

Crying my eyes out
Screaming to the gods
Why doesn’t anything go my way?
Praying against all odds

There’s a word
That’s stuck in my throat
I don’t know what it is
But I’m writing you this note

I put the note down
Somewhere I know you’ll find
Since you never knew me
Nonetheless my mind

But if you did
I don’t know what you would see
Because no one knows who I am
Not even me

But all I know
That I’ve been treated to unfair
And I can’t think of a single person
Who really might even care

I don’t know anything anymore
Because nothing will ever last
So I do the only think I know
And kill myself at last

I’ll slit my throat in heavy hopes
To get that last word out
I want to know what it is
What my life is all about

So I take that knife
And slit my veins with so much detail
Its then and there I try to take my life
Much to no avail

So there I am bleeding
Crying out for pardon
My wrists, my throat
All begin to harden

The sad part is
That at this point I never got to speak
For at this point and time
My heart was all too weak

So on my quest
To seek my prize
I discovered myself
Bleeding through my eyes

And later when he finds that note
With hope he can tell
All the trouble I went through
All the misery of hell

For on that note I scribbled
The word with all of the pain above
On that note I scribbled
I doodled the word love

    lol, thanks a lot. I'm crying so hard right now though. Either he has to dump me, or I have to dump him because my mom is prejudice against black guys. She found out and now I have to dump him and I don't know what to say, "Hey, Jordan I can't go out with you because my mom says you're black, and I'm too good for you?" I don't think that will go down very well.

    Jordan will dump me because he's creeped out that in like the 6th grade, as a dare I made out with a girl, and now the whole school is calling me some kind of lesbian, when really I'm straight. He doesn't believe me. He got all weird with me on the phone. Then he hung up. The drama never ends!!!!
