...Abject Thoughts of a Sullen Moon

By SolApathy

Heart tied in knots
Memories they rot
I blew past my stipend
Replaying the dreams
They became screams
I can no longer hear the world I fear
Buried too deep in my own tears
I am the abject deference
Death will be my severance
I escaped before it was too late
Killing myself before I became numb
My thoughts were my gun

    SolApathy, this is a frightening take on the end-it-all-cure for life! I feel sorry that there are those who think that this is the only way to deal with the slings and arrows of this existence. I had a friend of mine who was stopped from pulling the trigger by his son. His son told him that if he was to do it, he had to do it in front of him. Needless to say he could not go through with that act of insanity. Now, about 7 years later he says that was the greatest act of love he had ever experienced. He is now no longer in that situation and he credits his son with saving his life. This is a profound piece of writing! Lazarus Ominous
