    My life echoes in my
    dreams...
    covering my head with my pillow
    tryin to kill the screams...

    roses die each time i look
    at them...
    death has created new ways
    since the day, eve tricked
    adam...

    i write to cushion
    my pain...
    but pain seems to know when i pick up a
    pen, and makes itself
    dormant...
    it finds my heart and
    tortures it...
    i try to keep a smile on my face,
    but if you look in my eyes you can tell i cant
    ignore it...
    my body, i wish i could step inside and
    explore it...
    seek what's killin my spirit and
    control it...

    Today i stepped into a hall of mirrors
    and asked each and every one of me...
    which one was truly
    me...
    they all stared
    and began to cry uncontrollably...
    i started to drown in the
    river of tears that ran
    so endlessly...
    i fought my hardest, to emerge back to the surface
    but my might began to weaken
    me...

    slowly my vision
    started to fade...
    softly fallin to the bottom, with my right arm
    reaching out towards bloodly
    sun rays...

    If tomorrows were yesterdays
    life and suicide, will still be a part of
    my daily contemplate...

    Hi Mind Soul,

    I feel the pain of your wonderfully expressed poem.

    I know of this kind if pain. I struggle through it each and every day.

    I hope you continue to write to ease your pain. Soon, it will wither and you will become to feel whole again.

    Don't allow your pain to win. Overcome those empty feelings and embrace the light and grace of life.

    We need the beauty of your words.

    All my best to you!!

    ~Sierra~:heart:
