The love I want is greedy

The world has tilted beneath my eyelids,

Clutching my opposing wrists, I dig deeply,

God has forsaken me and the devil forbids,

The love I want is greedy.



The roses are dead,

I can feel my soul crying,

I've woken up in the hospital,

They say I was close to dying.



I struggle with Life as I beg to kiss Death,

My veins flow free as I bleed crimson red,

I choke on my sobs as I struggle to catch my breath,

My depression, a lonely road, I can only tread.



The grief that's caught between my lips,

The smog of suicide like cigarette sticks,

The desolation my lover feels as they grip my hips,

It's my sorrows weighing me down like a house made of bricks.



The world has tilted beneath my eyelids,

Clutching my opposing wrists, I dig deeply,

God has forsaken me and the devil forbids,

The love I want is greedy.



The scars are the wounds of my heart that can't heal,

Shattered glass cups and drugs are my answer,

Depression and Suicide screaming to kneel,

My rage, pain, and agony gripping like cancer.



The ocean is vastly wide and deep like my depression,

I want to dig out my heart and offer it relief,

I might visit the church and leave one final confession,

I hope the pain I leave behind will only be brief.



The medication I take only makes me feel worse,

Depression aside, I think I am cursed,

I hope they will be gentle when they put me in the hearse,

I'm sorry my lover, you were my first.

Reading this stings - the pain here in these words. I feel almost saturated by it.

Should this be more than a story, I hope you know you have an intrinsic worth.

In any instant, I like this.
