I have been dealing with suicide for the longest time. And your poem basically summarizes why I have been staying alive for just a little longer. Thanks for your talent. And thanks for writing this poem.

maria thank you. i really enjoyed your words and admire your strength in always being able to wait "just a little longer". i often feel this way myself and was starting to feel like i was alone.

a hopeless heart is filled with a sence of knowing as depression cries its mourning song.

That was really deep. I loved it and i almost started balling while reading it. thanx for the experience!
Jennifer
This was deep. I can honestly say I know how that feels. I write poetry because the words flow from my mouth like it's nothing weak. The feelings are real. The thoughts are real, but when you look for help. The friends aren't there. Your not alone.
