If you are going to kill yourself
Someone is going to find you.
Do you want that?
You are trying to die, I might wish you success,
But for what?
So you don't like it how it is,
Do you think anyone does?
But it is better to change, than destroy...

              Oh my god, I can't carry on like this.
              Not each day the same same thing!
              You want me to wait,
              But I just collect more pain.
              You say live for your dreams,
              But only nightmares now remain.
              I am going      crazy
              I'd rather be dead than insane.

But I am saying that you
Can't Can't Can't.

              Are you saying that I daren't?


              Why? I can tell you why!
              Because YOU cannot bear it.

This is a brave poem and it's good that you can express this so convincingly. I could not delve deep into such matters.

I like the way Deadlock starts to focus away from the one and let them think of those who are left to deal with it.
