Sugar Suicide

to know your major steps

are minor in the eyes of others

calls into to question everything you know


maybe you were never getting better

maybe these steps were always going to be here


or maybe they will always ruin the work you've done

with their simple words


just how could they make all that come undone?

by reducing it to none.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I've got a job, a boyfriend, I havent attempted suicide in 2 years, I feel like ive made major progress for myself. all until my mother calls me lazy and 'not trying' because my school is slacking. It makes all the the rest of the work feel useless. like maybe I'm not getting better at all.

    On a light note - Oohh, don't go anywhere. Stay and write good poems like this!
    Yet it's your progress, minor or major. Some aim for perfectionism, or expect it of others.
    I told a 'not-a-people-person' something good about me. They slagged me off. I didn't say much to them afterwards. I had two words in mind though, one of which was 'off' (ooh).
