CN: Suicidal ideation

I’m standing

on the edge of a lake

 

 

the trees surround me,

the campus building

is behind me and

there’s no one out here –

not even me, for I have

allowed myself to be

consumed

 

 

 

something was actually

calling me that night

 

 

vibrating like stars

but coming from the water

 

 

 

the word ‘gravity’ was repeating itself

 

 

 

I snapchatted my last words to my best friend.

she said it would make a great novel

 

 

 

when I went back inside

another friend messaged me: “why don’t you draw?

that’s what I’m doing right now.”

 

 

so I did.

 

 

 

I particularly liked the eyes.
