Denouement

This is not the end of the world
this is just the end of me
in some drunk-sodden heap
or substance wracked alley
This is not the end of existence
this is just the end of mine
make of that what you will
in your quest for purity and reason
This is not the end of time
but mine has come
in waves crashed down from your raging sea
in days past they asked
for mercy on their souls
but I expect none from you, or any
other
This is not the end of a life
but a new beginning for yours

      1. I’m sorry to hear. I hope you will find a positive outlet to express your pain. I suffer from depression and suicidal ideation. I can’t say time heals all but some days are better than others. Don’t put all your self-worth into another. Give yourself the love that you need.
