Memento Mori

Part 1 (Poison Memories, and a Lonely Suicide)

As you stand there and speak, I slowly drift away
Poisoned by the memories of yesterday
Flashbacks play like a broken record in my mind
Cause have you ever felt-
Like your emotions were wrapped in barbwire?
Confused, trapped, and lonely
You open the cupboard door
And remove the long silver knife

Contemplating a million worries at once
The knife is trembling in your dead hand
Screaming out in silence, you desperately look around for comfort
But you find nothing-
No one knows you're there, slipping through the circles of hell
Alone and falling-
Despair is a cruel mistress

In a state of disbelief, you raise the knife to your throat
And wonder-
"Is this really what my life has become"?
Tensing your muscles, and tightening your grip, you're ready to end it
End it, and escape-
All the pain, all the lies, all the loneliness

Part 2 (Guardian Angels, and a Moment of Truth)

Suddenly, in a moment of truth
Your life flashes before your eyes
And some intense and bittersweet emotion
Rushes through your veins

Then-
As if your guardian angels finally arrived
You pull the knife away from your throat

But after a short-lived feeling of serenity
The aftermath hits you like a ton of bricks
The weight of confusion is crushing
"Was I really just about to slit my throat"?

Part 3 (Forgotten Flowers, Underneath the Snow)

As you begin the painful process of reflection
It becomes evident, that whatever guardian angels you had
Have since departed

Cold, lonely, and desperate
You try to find some silver lining
Some justification or rational
But there's nothing

Your soul has withered
Like forgotten flowers
Under the winter snow

And your heart turns bitter
Like someone left out in the cold
Who can only watch the warm fireplace
From outside the window

Part 4 (Cherry Red Roses, After a Long Winter)

Years have passed since those dark times in my life
And after much introspection and soul searching

I’ve realized that loneliness and despair
Can melt away, like snow and ice
And that happiness and serenity can blossom
Like cherry red roses, after a long winter

I’ve learned that love and friendship
Are what’s truly important
And I no longer envy the warmth of the fireplace
From outside the window

In my soul, I used to contemplate suicide
But now I realize that life is a precious gift

In my soul, I used to find confusion
But now I realize the secret to life…
