    ...at Least For the Night

    Sitting, legs crossed, back bent, arms wrapped around with my chin resting on my knee… a tight ball, rolled small, trying to become invisible. The water as hot as I can stand, stinging, beating, scalding, cleansing the pain away. I don’t believe in a god but at this...

    It's amazing how many things I survived.

    I attempted suicide various ways and didn't even reach a near point of death. I ate poison, tried choking myself, walk through a street that's always busy without looking both ways, went down a hill while riding a cruiser and jumped off to cause brain damage so I can die. It's...
