I'm Lost (Poetry by GalaxyRat)

Updated on May 29, 2017

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

I am lonely, I am lost,

I've tried everything, I've tried to pray,

I've tried to tell my family,

But it's not working, I have no other way.

All the stuff going on it school,

All the teachers threatening to fail me,

But, no one cares,

So, at least no one will try to stop me.

I borrowed my father's gun the other day,

I brought it to my head,

But my mother called me for lunch,

and I swore, and kicked the pistol under the bed.

At least it will be there when I need it,

And in school, I keep on planning the end,

the simple move that will stop my suffering,

And bring me to the ground, friend.

Yes, I'm talking to you,

Friend, you know what?

You stopped me from committing suicide tonight,

And at least I'll be with my parents one more day with some luck.

Yesterday, I went through another fight,

I still have the gun under the bed,

But, you know what...

You kept me from committing suicide tonight.

      John,

      Thanks! Same, I feel I'm better at darker poetry. Probably because I can release myself a little more. Thanks for reading, and more poetry is in the oven!

      Maryam,

      Everyone hits that low! Some have it more severely than others . Thanks!

      Matty,

      Yes, this is dark but we need to reveal this side of the human condition rather than hide it. I write a lot of inspirational and uplifting poems but I feel that my darker ones are often my best. Well done, Galaxy Rat. I have to read more of your poetry.

      Actually, it's not from life experience, but from the experience of others. Thanks for reading!

      This is sad. I hope that if this is written from life experience, you have talked with someone who can help. I have lost a number of relatives and a friend this way and it haunts me that they chose this sad option.
