Slit A Wrist

by Sandra D   Feb 6, 2007


Slit a wrist
Start to cry
Call your friends
And say goodbye

Slit a wrist
Watch it bleed
It's all you want
And all you need

Slit a wrist
With that knife
You deeply want
To end your life

Slit a wrist
Hesitate
Put the knife down
It's not too late

Slit a wrist
Think about
What you're feeling
Inside and out

Slit a wrist
Not too deep
This is a life
You may want to keep

***************************
OK, so i think this is officially my best poem,
i don't really know how
everyone else feels about it,
but i love it... just thought I'd say that! :]

    I can relate to this piece. I love the way it rhymes, it seems to suit the poem.. The message is clear and simply written.

    Well. I was a bit disappointed it didn't turn out to be all darkish and gloomy, but it turned out to be quite nice. I especially like the first two stanzas.

    "Slit a wrist
    Watch it bleed
    It's all you want
    And all you need"
    Those last two lines made me pause. I've seen it often, but it's one of those things that always hit hard. At some points, it's kinda true for everyone, no?

    "You deeply want
    To end your life"
    I think this was the only thing in the poem that I didn't like. It's too... blatantly put?

    "Slit a wrist
    Not too deep"
    That came as a very unexpected surprise, and a pleasant one, too. It holds hope, but also a sort of neutrality that is kind of cold, but also comforting.

    A job well done.
