Do You Bellieve Me Now?

"It's just exam stress," they said 

"It's not a problem that she won't leave her bed."

They didn't realise she was depressed

As she laid there, thinking about death


"She hasn't started cutting yet," they explained 

"She's not in any real pain."

And with the first scrape of the blade across her chest

she sat on the floor, planning her death


"She hasn't tried to kill herself yet," they'd say

"she'll be fine. She'll be okay"

But she wishes each one to be her last breath,

As she stands alone, beginning the end.

    Lovely way to put suicidal ideations. But, it would be lovelier if she stayed awhile and shared more of the rebirth that lays ahead. Wonderful.
