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.
amazing, this poem puts into words the fears of my soul
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!
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.
This is a very good poem as all the words pass by i felt my life so like this poem it has so much meaning and life to the words i felt a part with the words used .maria byrne i love your poem and you should write more you have a gift good luck

This poem touched me in ways I have never felt. For once I got too know that "it's not just me!" I guess I'm not alone in this world afterall.

this poem magnifies the dark heart of depression. it sins of melancholia and hopelessness this poem is symbolic of the endless tears we cry during that overwhelming low
