  • Selbstmörderisch

    Das Blut
    Oder der Schmerz
    Ich weiß nicht
    Was ich tun soll
    Mein Leben in Trümmern
    Mein Leben in Unordnung

    Das Messer
    Oder die Drogen
    Was auch immer
    Zu mir passt
    Aber es spielt keine Rolle
    Ich möchte das jetzt beenden

    Die Tränen oder ein
    Gefühl der Freiheit
    Aber es interessiert
    Mich nicht mehr
    Mein Leben in Trümmern
    Mein Leben in der Dunkelheit

    Das Seil
    Oder die Pistole
    Was auch immer
    So schnell enden kann
    Meine Freunde und alles hinter sich zu lassen
    Es ist mir verdammt noch mal egal

    Manchmal komme
    Ich nicht weiter
    Und ich möchte sterben
    Und nur Gott kann mich retten

    Wenn am Ende des Tunnels kein Licht ist
    Es hat keinen Sinn
    Zu leben
    Wenn es weder Liebe noch Glück gibt
    Es hat keinen Sinn
    Mehr zu leben

    Mein Leben ist eine Lüge...​

    For Mental Health Awareness Month, here's a pretty dark entry but to make it less of that to a certain extent, it's done in German. However, unlike this entry also done in a foreign language, I will not provide the English translation for it as it would be too disturbing to read if I did.

    (Note: I don't actually speak German... each verse was written in English and then translated, though with some sentences broken up just for effect)

    An interesting exercise
    that stuttered through
    my adolescent German.

    ​​​​​​​"the rope or the gun"
    which swifter,
    more certain a
    tunnel through
    which to leave,
    casting aside
    the restraints of
    memory, the fading
    firework of ​​​​family and friends.

      I'm leaving this post up because you're a regular contributor and you have clarifying notes which explain your reasoning, but just an FYI, forum rule number 8 designates this as an English speaking forum and asks to post your poems in English. Not a big deal for me, but I thought you might like to know.

        I'm fully aware of that. I can post the English version of it if you want, but I'd probably attach a warning to it as the message would be a whole lot darker than my other entries.

      No, it's cool. I've just deleted other foreign language postings and wanted to clarify for folks. You're good.
