    dotsTry not to Die but Closedots

    Death is not enough
    It won't repay the things I've done
    It can't take away your pain
    Or the scars that I have drawn

    No reason is enough
    All excuses far too dry
    If I knew you didn't need me
    I'm more than prepared to die

    I have no right to complain
    About the pain I'm in
    Every breath may hurt
    But far less than this sin

    And I know I can't make it better
    Redemtion will never be close
    I always thought I'd be best for you
    But I'm not even better than most

    I'm not sure why you care
    If I live or die alone
    But I guess death is too easy
    Too much so for my wrongs

    And I tried, but I guess
    I lost my mind at some point there
    And I'd lie if I said I don't regret
    What you went through was not fair

    So put me there... I'm hurting already for you
    But I know good and well that's not the best you can do
    My heart cries for what I've made you endure
    But there's more blood and room for it to hurt a bit more

    I live for you, I'll live in pain
    Whatever you need I'm your fool
    I'm not that person anymore
    But I have no right to be with you

    If me dying would hurt you so
    I wish I were blind instead
    Claw my eyes out while I cry
    And make me dumb, brain dead

    I want to be your best
    But I was far from that place
    The scum of the earth, such lowlife
    It loves you so and wears my face

      Dang this was good; I had to reread this whole thing just because it was good. I like how you seem to under stand death better then death itself. Even though the feelings seem to push and yet at the same time pull, you have emphasis on the sensitivity you carry about the other person then you do for your self. And though you donít feel rite for the person and sometimes want the quicker way out you seem to still hold more of the honor for the individual and just carry the burden and better of the worst for the other person so they keep going. And the best lines I like describing that

    If me dying would hurt you so
    I wish I were blind instead
    Claw my eyes out while I cry
    And make me dumb, brain dead.

    Like your saying that you go further then death just to make things rites. And I also like to say that I agree with torch about that last stanza,

    It loves you so and wears my face,

    About wearing your face. So much people put so much in wearing the emotions on there faces or just painting them. But here wearing it points out how much more that you become more of a slave to such stress then you looking for it, or how much it has become like a pet, not the words I want to use but the only thing that makes sense, and then chose you as a victim. But ya I like it a lot hope to read more.

      Honestly I love this, honestly.

    I have no idea why no one has commented yet but let me be the first to do so. First the rhyme scheme of this was great without taking away from the punch of the write. Although I believe you might have gotten off beat in one stanza which kinda had me wondering. I can understand that though when you just have this great story in your head and you've created this scheme for it and then you come to a piece that you can't get to quite fit.

    I love the blunt and openness to this I see the picture you know the deranged lover that loves you enough to admit (even on their death bed) that they weren't best for you. But still their selfish and human enough not to want you to go even though they know you should. It's classic yet original all the same.

    I want to be your best
    But I was far from that place
    The scum of the earth, such lowlife
    It loves you so and wears my face

    The last line in particular I personally like because the word wear kinda comes to a surprise to me. I mean theres so many things that you could've said instead. (It hurts, I'm in pain, It makes me sad, It hurts my soul) But no you picked wear, and it flows quite well.

    Whatever prompted you to write this (even if it was hurtful) I believe was good for you because it caused you to write this.

    Keep writing, keep making people reread your words five times over for the full impact.
