I have visited the
halls of the mental wards
three times in this
lifetime.

The first time
I was driven through.
Herded.
A deranged,
unsightly beast
with two left feet
and a thirst for
its own blood.

The second time
I was carried through.
Cradled and cold,
a child with wax wings.
I'd flown too close
to the sun.

The third time
was by my own hand.
I was tired.
I had had enough.
I was ready to be
something
worth
living for.

I have attempted suicide three times in my life and this is how it was.

Word for word.
Your story might be different than mine, but that's how it went for me.

You wouldn't believe how often I get that feeling.

(deep breath) Suicide's a strong stimulus to take up. It takes a significantly life-shattering push to take the plunge towards suicide - such instances which have happened to you to have made you do so... is scary, no doubt, but its something which is brave of you to admit.

I hope that you've managed to settle down and things turn out better for you.

This is just so painfully honest. Amazing work. It takes a lot of courage to write something like this, let alone share it for everyone to see. :heart:
