The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother. - Jules

Slit Throat Peace
(I just want to add this because I'm new to the forum and not sure how it will be received. This poem is rated M on my writing site and is classified as horror. It's dark. End PSA.)

Today I couldn't reach the light switch.
Defeated I sat back into my chair,
And swallowed the darkness whole.
Curled in the corner of my bed
I try to sew this unraveled mind back together.
Misplacing happiness and joy.
My heart wilted, into it's most fragile state.
Begging to crush and become dust
With every painful thump
In it's daily monotony.
Unable to even cry I stare,
Shoulders shaking from the pure pressure
Of everything lost and gone.
Love. Innocence. Faith.
Wholeness. Emotion. Strength.
Washed away by these red waves,
Drowning me in it's copper sputter.
Apologies stumble across the dry desert
Cracked lips, a slit throat.
Spine curling in knowing disobedience.
And I lay down, to close my eyes.
Sleep softly.
Sigh.
Peace.
