"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


Screaming, screaming,
Crying, crying,
Burning, burning,
Dying, dying.
All these thoughts,
Race through my head,
I’m spinning out of control,
Help me or I’m dead.
A heartbeat fades,
Fades away,
Dimming to silence,
May life say.
You lived not long,
But now is the time,
Goodbye for now goodbye.

This is about how life can blaze past us and leave us feeling lonely, so lonely that we just end it all. Please comment!

Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.

There's no way to just "end it all"--whatever choice you make, you're going to be affected, either now or for whatever lies in eternity. Yes, there is hope. But no flicking off a switch in life. I have to keep convincing myself that suicide isn't just a bad idea, it isn't even a thing. Yes, there is a reason we're alive, we are helping others, we are valuable, and we are loved.
