Dead Inside

Shattered, alone, fragile and broken,
I offer my life to you as a small token,
I know it doesn't mean a thing to you,
But my soul has shattered, completely and through;

I think of the way it might be better to die,
A gunshot death, or to jump and fly?
Or might it be better to cut open your veins?
Only when I die will I be free of these games;

I tried to run, forget, and live a life,
But those hopes were shattered, alas, in strife,
I tried to smile and laugh and joke,
But with every word my heart slowly broke;

So now as I stand here, longing for death,
I'm trying to enjoy every single breath,
But my soul has shattered, and my heart has broke,
So why am I still here, living in smoke?

I'm dead inside, no matter what,
I'd rather just become forgot,
So many times I stood and fought,
But I couldn't ever gain the wish I sought;

So leave me here, leave me to die,
I'm empty now, can't even cry,
There's nothing you can do for me,
So let me die and I'll be free...

I found your poem, not because I had searched it just to read it, but because my sister stolen it and claimed it as her own work. I just want to apologize for that, it really is a lovely poem and I write poems as well.

I really like this, it has a nice ring and actually rhymes c: I know it's not all about rhyming but i think it sounds better when it does. I want to submit poems too but can't figure out how the hell to. Is there a submit button somewhere? It would b awesome if someone helped, thnx.

i think it speaks freely to the people who actually have problems with cutting not to the people think its a style
