maybe you are not depressed,
or some other tragic case.
Maybe you had a bad argument with someone…
a parent, friend, boyfriend or girlfriend
and it hit a nerve in a terrifying way.
It wasn’t intentional,
you just didn’t know how to cope
with the unfamiliar emotions that came forth.
You were hurting in a way you’ve never experienced before
but instead of talking about it,
you became enraged and started slashing your wrist
or causing other bodily harm in a deathtrap way;
maybe you thought that taking a bunch of pills
would be enough
to send the message you wanted to deliver
but never woke up to shed the dead weight.
