I tried

My time here has come to a bitter end
I've tried
I even tried falling in love again
But the darkness inside is too strong
I don't have the fight to carry on
I don't owe any of you an explanation
This is my choice
And I do it without hesitation
Everything you think about me must be true
I swallowed your words just like these pills
And now I find myself drifting away from everything I once loved
This world is too bitter, cruel and tough.

I agree. Keep writing for it will help. Not solve problems but help. You have the wonderful ability to convey emotions.

Life is indeed bitter, cruel, and tough. But (I hope this plea is neither tardy nor impertinent) please keep writing, and please keep fighting. You bring light to the darkness with your honesty and your poems of clear-eyed uncompromise. And I hope that the speaker of the words in this poem can find her way toward some light, however faint, in the darkness that she describes with such fierce eloquence.
