Day 19 ~~ NaPoWriMo ~~ an A,B,C,D,E ... Form Flash Poem

Letting go now 

Always on the go 
But slowed a bit somewhat 
Caring not for much anymore 
Death should not be an option 
Earth no longer wanted me 
Flirting with pills and vodka 
Guns not in the picture 
Have no time for remorse 
Ice too solid no breaking through 
Justice is no more 
Killing myself goodbye unkind world

I feel sympathy for the speaker of this poem - unable to find means to end it all on a very bad day. Not even the ice will give way beneath his feet. I hope he feels better tomorrow.

Maybe there is a reason why it's hard to end it... must be better to hang on.

Death by choice seems OK, for we will all die one day. Interesting to be deterred at every turn.

Oh, goodness this is dark. I attempted suicide at nineteen.

This is not your usual voice, Jim, so am hoping the narrator is imagined..........the poem, itself, is so well done, the voice very authentic.

I get that this is a flash 55, but artistically speaking, I find it unnerving that an abecedarian poem which is essentially a suicide note is truncated, ended at "K"... almost as if the speaker decided to carry-out their suicide before completing the poem.

Your words are beautiful and sad, and I hope you bounce back from your malaise soon.

I hope you and your Muse are in a better frame of mind by now.
