    Tormented Beyond Life

    AmaryLLis RyL Ness
    Why do you dislike people?

    Is it because you envy them? Or is it because they have something you can’t get? Is it the fact that your friends dislike them so you have to also? Is it because of race, gender, or religion? Or, do they torment you?

    Tormented during life time
    May reflect upon your personality
    Having a vulnerable mind
    May lead to your fatality.

    Losing your loved ones’
    To **** that isn’t fair
    May leave you wondering,
    Left in a cold stare.

    When, where, and why
    Will I die?
    Not left with a chance
    To say goodbye. Trust me, I’ve experienced it.

    Not knowing the person,
    The person you love the most
    Wishing you can give it all up
    Just so you can say Hello.

    I never knew my father
    And it torments me every day
    People asking you what’s wrong
    But all you say is “I’m Okay”

    When in fact you are lying
    To yourself just to ease the pain
    Crying your own river
    Just to escape the rain.

    What about that special someone that you love but don’t love you back? Wishing you could get a chance, maybe even a second with her or him. Believe me, I’ve experienced it.

    Feeling condemned
    Feeling bloody
    Praying this isn’t the end
    Even if you’re misunderstood

    Even if you are condemned
    To the darkness and evilness of world
    Feeling your life slip away
    In a gentle whirl

    Contemplating suicide
    Your unkind and untimely death
    Contemplating life
    Beyond life’s painful breath

    Trying to escape the torment of everyday life can have its negative or positive effects on someone. The path you choose will determine your destiny. Your choices will determine that path open for you. Your heart will determine your choices while your mind tells your heart what to do.

    Which is all a reflection of you.

    I know you've heard the saying, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I liked the way you ended this piece, putting some questions to the reader to contemplate. Intriguing write.
