swallow me up  
swallow me up
you river fish
tear my flesh
which only hurts
above my heart
the muscles long since last used
from bones so often bowed so often bent so often
up the bits and
share them out
to hungry brothers and starving sisters
until the giving hurts
someone else
Current Mood: predatory
Current Music: Joan Osborne - Ladder

Ahhh...I'm speechless. I can actually relate to that feeling. Just wanting anything but the pain, even if it's nonexistence. You captured it so well.

Well, that's it, basically. I've never been suicidal, but I've been close to those who were, so I try to understand it.

I have as well, and it's not an easy thing to watch. Especially when you can't help them, in truth they can only help themselves. And I've never actually thought of suicide, but there were times when I wished I didn't exist. I doubt that would make sense anyone but me.
