A sudden knock,
a sudden scare
a sudden noise,
but no one’s there.

A sudden noise,
a sudden spark,
a sudden fall,
a sudden dark.

A sudden tear,
one last breath,
a sudden end,
a sudden death.


This is a poem I wrote in high school. While I was never suicidal myself, I often sympathized with those that might be. Still, to this day, I mourn for those that find life to be so hopeless that they would take their own life. This is why I share this poem.
