The only time I smiled today
Was when I thought of dying
And how good I am at lying
Each and every single day.

I've got a box of painkillers
They sleep right by my bed
For when all I see is red,
They'll numb it into darkest white.

I've tried talking to people,
But I can't word what I want to say
And maybe I like living this way,
Knowing that I'll die soon.

I know I'm self-destructive
My crosshatch skin screams it
But inside there's a little bit
That still aches to be saved.

I've tried before and I'll try again
To put my worthlessness away
But fate forced me to stay;
Death's a bitch like that.

Life makes me want to die
Yet it won't let me leave
Or grant me a reprieve
From that which it's made me hate;
Life itself.
I wrote this late last night, so sorry if it's shitty. Thanks for reading. :)

I wrote this a little while ago (sometime last year), and I have definitely found beauty in life since then :hug:

''I know I'm self-destructive

This is brilliantly written, like all your writing it's written amazingly, something people can relate too and I think that's a special thing :) I wish I could tell you something that'd make life feel better for you, but unfortunatly I can't. But I'm pretty damn sure there are people around you who'd miss you like crazy if you were gone.

Thank you very much. Whenever I write something I always hope that it will be something that people can relate to, so I'm glad you think this is relatable.

Nah, It's not crappy.
Emo, confessional or angst poetry tends to work best when it's as rough and sore as the pain that inspired it. I certainly wrote more than my share of angst poetry in my late teens. These days, I'm more angry and world-weary than angsty, but I did recently revisit the old angst playgrounds in "Call Me Nobody".

Between you and me and the wall, it's been my experience that the only "raw" and emotional poetry that tends to come out like a steaming turd is love poetry, as nearly all of it veers towards treacly sentimentality. If a woman writes it, it's all about wanting to be romanced and cherished, and if a man writes it, it's all about how much he wants to make love. :P

Thanks. :)

I write a lot of emo/angst poetry, or at least I am at the moment and I agree with what you're saying about it being at its best when it's "rough and sore". That way you can hopefully portray the emotions behind it.

Haha. ;P

At least you can still write interesting stuff in that genre. Around the time I was 20, I found out that my attempts at angst poetry started coming out as trite and about as refreshing as dust.

Hence, I had to move on into other areas, and at that point, I found atmospheric and environmental poetry to be a far more fruitful playground.
