to suicide ; [poem]

you are a greedy needy mouth
hungry for the bodies of those who fight the hardest
they get called weak
when you swallow them whole
their heartbeats stilled in your shrill silence
and you are no friend
no helping hand
instead you are the firing squad
and the wall
and the bullets traveling through the air
between the guns and the flesh
and you are a thief
stealing time from tickling time bomb hearts
and unwinding unwound clocks
over and over
you dig into the jaws of depression
and pluck out the victims you like best
from between its teeth
I can only pray for your failure
this time
the next time
every single time
