Sub-Ed Note: Some of the themes explored in this poem may not be to everybody's taste.

Humans are so easy to break,
A heart can pound and love till death,
But once broken the mind's end will be met,
So grim and dark when depression hits,
Your body will take any pain,
Just so your mind can have relief,
The world goes dull and lifeless,
When inside you just feel numb,
You want to feel pain as you're fed up of sorrow,
Not even wanting to wake up tomorrow,
The past is the past and the future is bare,
No colours do you see in your hair,
No more can you find a pair,
And I think this is no longer fair,
As you feel alone with your heart, no one seems to care,
Taking a breath each morning has become a chore,
One I wish to do no more,
My smile is fake and forced in place,
A mask I wear to hide my face,
Stuck forever in this broken case,
To carve into the skin would be nothing but sin,
I might as well throw this life in the bin,
I've been on bridges, I've been in the river,
Dwelling on this misery,
Then my life did begin,
Picked up by the law and taken in by the loony bin,
Therapy was my new saviour,
My doctors felt I was getting better,
But then I left and it all fell to pieces,
My family don't care,
I've pulled out my hair,
Smashed my head a dozen times,
Stopped taking my pills before I took too many,
I've slit my wrists and let it all bleed out,
Given myself pain and just let the feeling in,
Tried hot water and even cold,
But the voices are still there,
Tied up in my head, never leaving,
Never shutting up,
What happened to me? I no longer give a f***,
They all call me names like slag and slut,
But what about the stupid mutt,
Who tried to get me in a rut?
Bitches and whores,
Geeks and their flaws,
Now all this rushes to the surface,
My eyes start to close,
As all my blood flows,
Dead and gone from this insanity.
