black as the pit

deep like an abyss

it sucked me in this space

where time and existence

are but an illusion

my feet are dangling

precariously disastrous

looking down

it lures

if living is a dream

i will sleep here

in this ledge

where i shall lay

in a sheath of oblivion

a crevice of damnation.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wonder why some people finds it easy to end their lives.  "Hope" should never leave our hearts.  God owns our lives, it's not ours to end it as we please.
