I honestly don't know what I think of this one... I mean it's okay, but I think the rhyming's a little rough...

Death by Sharpened Knife

She was always happy
and fun to be around
Whenever you even saw her
There was no sadness to be found

But on the inside she was breaking
slowly piece by piece
She was drowning in her sorrow
the pain would never cease

Finally, she couldn't take it
and sought to end her life
And suddenly she was gone
Death by sharpened knife

This was not expected
by anyone she knew
So when you decide on death
think of the loved ones you'd leave too...

Wow. It's reminds me of me...kind of. When I was cutting, I was always happy on the outside in public. But later, alone, I was depressed. I wouldn't have commited suicide, but still. I don't cut anymore though.
People do need to think of the one they leave behind :)

oh how very sad... people dont often think of those they would leave behind.... good write ~angie~
