You finally killed your pain

The only way you knew how

You cried & you screamed & finally you bled

And I can't help but wonder

Did you feel anything but the searing pain from that blade

How did it end like this

With you

Alone

In the dead of night with that decision in your mind

On that cold October night

Was the redness that poured from you full of regret or relief

Momentary agony that you knew would end shortly

And then you'd be out of your misery once & for all

How did it end like this

With you

Alone

In the dead of night with that decision in your mind

On that cold October night

You begged for the grave & your wound helped you there

You were too far gone to be saved & I can't help but wonder

Did you even want to be saved

Was that why you were alone in the dead of that night

Knowing the decision you'd already made

On that cold October night
