I wrote this at a really hard time in my life, and yes I was clinically depressed and considering suicide. I've changed and those feelings are gone, but these words remain. Of course, it's C4C.


I started shaking, holding back tears
Couldn't breathe, my heart was pounding
How did you do this in only two days?
Months of dry eyes down the drain

I found a new razor
The handle's rusty but the blade's fine
It's kissed my veins fifteen times tonight
Every single one was just one more time

The pain still won't go away
So I only have one option left
Hang a noose from the ceiling
That will ensure certain death

I don't know how, but you've
Found the hole in the wall around my heart
You crawled through the crack
And brick by brick, broke the wall apart
You took my heart and claimed it as yours
But then you changed your mind
You shattered my heart
When you said you needed more time

I tie the loop, secure the knot
And hang it from my ceiling
The final words I issue-
The painful lyrics of Silverstein

But, oh, so fitting, as I hear
"Bleeds No More" blare from the speakers
I prepare myself for the drop
When my knees suddenly go weaker

"Should I be doing this?"
One final, last-second thought
But I've come too far now
And I begin my drop

I don't know how, but you've
Found the hole in the wall around my heart
You crawled through the crack
And brick by brick, broke the wall apart
You took my heart and claimed it as yours
But then you changed your mind
You shattered my heart
When you said you needed more time

I wake up an hour later
The knot didn't hold
With my bloodshot eyes
I see the rope on the ground, crumpled

It's back to the drawing board
To give death another try
This is just one more
In a long list of failed suicides

My next attempt will be a shotgun
Fired point blank into my chest
The buckshot will enter the vacant space
That held my heart but has nothing left

I don't know how, but you've
Found the hole in the wall around my heart
You crawled through the crack
And brick by brick, broke the wall apart
You took my heart and claimed it as yours
But then you changed your mind
You shattered my heart
When you said you needed more time
