Legs crossed on a cold basement floor,
Blood stains painting my flesh,
The wounds deeper than ever before,
A white gown now a short black dress.
Long tangled hair clinging to my tears
Wind howling through the trees,
Moonlight painting a sky so clear,
And darling, I'm going to be set free.
My fingers scratch at the blood on my skin,
A delightful pain at the thought of a touch,
And hey, everyone who said I wasn't worth it,
Tell me,
Now am I good enough?
Be prepared. I'm in a "depressing poetry" mood. 
Not saying i'm depressed, and just for the haters... THIS IS NOT FOR ATTENTION -.- 
I'm just posting it... because i love writing :)

And to anyone feeling this way in reality, please stay strong and know that you're beautiful <3

I think you are good enough. Very talented at writing and that is a gift you can share with the whole world. There will always be haters, but screw those schmucks, you are above that crap. :)

Just because someone write a poetry like this, doesn't mean they want to kill themselves. Some writers like to take the venom out of their hearts, this way only good feelings can be left there. Maybe the poet isn't talking about self-suicidal. It doesn't mean that the girl in the poetry is hurting herself. Maybe the poet is talking about how we hurt ourselves emotionally, not physically. Anyways, I really love this piece. Good Job!

Yes it is. I'm tired of all these "if youre ready to kill yourself" poetry things.
It's almost a meme to write suicide manuals.

Because of little kids going 'emo' or 'depressed' to get attention, it has now become a 'Boy who cried wolf' moment. And because of that, people who suffer from real REAL depression are being judged and labelled as 'attention whores'. It's really, really sad to know that...

I'm just leaving this here so that heartless people who think you 'are' doing this for attention can read this as an important message to them.

Your poems are simply beautiful by the way :D

This here is what made my depression worse. I wasn't able to talk about it due to people thinking I was 'attention whoring'. I stopped talking.

I suffer from BPD and depression. In my head my explanations make sense but when I try to talk about my problems, it either comes out like word vomit or it doesn't come out at all. Writing is a wonderful escape. When words fail you, write, even if you don't post it. Feel better. Stay strong.

 

By the way, this poem is lovely.

I used to feel like this, but I haven't for a long time, thank you for writing this.  It's nice to know I'm no the only one who went through something like this.
