NOTE: This poem touches on the subject of suicidal thoughts.

Suicidal thoughts are more common than many may believe. It's sad to say that many of us will face such dark thoughts at some point during in our lives. Don't be afraid to ask for help or to talk things through with someone if you are struggling, as sometimes an outside perspective of our struggle can offer a little light inside the darkness.

I myself know what it's like, to feel empty and hopeless as if there is only one course of action left. But I also came to see that just because things seem bleak now, it doesn't mean things always will be... Just hold on :-)

I Fell...

by Westley Nash

In that moment I fell...

I didn't even try to stop myself.

Didn't reach for anything.

Never once called out for help.

As if the monster roaring inside my heart were repulsed by the mere thought of it.

Because in that exact moment, regardless of anything,

I wanted to fall!..

I wanted to disappear into that abyss.

To drop and to tumble on into the gloom until I hit the very bottom.

Down to where nothing breathes and where nothing lives...

To lose my pain within the silence forever more....


Hello :-) If you are suffering with suicidal thoughts, don't be afraid to ask for help. You are worth fighting for... Best Wishes Westley <3
