i could've been anchored away
beneath the frost and floe
comatose in the river mud.
i would've been mortified
ice crushing my lungs into sushi
nothing but the taste of dirt
curling over my tongue.
i should've considered
that i wouldn't have
spoken any last words
only bubbles would slip through
my teeth.  
I was sitting under the bridge i nearly jumped off, today 
and i wrote this 
Please remember that you aren't alone 
and you don't have to end your life before you live it

I think you understand we are happy to hear that you did not jump, so the world can continue to hear and read and see what you have to tell.

I came close to it a lot, this past summer

And a few more times in the beginning of winter, but with different tools


But I think I've been almost two weeks clean


So


Improvement

Great!  Keep improving.  Eventually, you'll see why and that is what you need to be searching for, not looking back.

A subject close to my heart. The poem is telling, expressive and relatable. Somehow you writing this underneath a bridge reminded me of Kurt Cobain...

Regards,
John.

Thank you very much :aww: 
It's just that that particular bridge, both my friend and I almost jumped off, on two separate occasions.  

We have a lot of history, that bridge and I

Well I hope the bridge brings you much inspiration rather than taking it from you. :)
