The fires of hell are timid
compared to the burning in my soul.
Faith, hope and love have deserted
the core of my innocence...
I long for annihilation,
for a definite end to this thing called life.

Rape has destroyed my virtue.
Rejection has plagued my days.
My creative ability is corrupted by the hatred
of another...

I know no peace.
No joy resides in my neglected being...

My sole desire is the abandonment of this world.
To rot in my own destruction
would fulfill my solitary dream...

I shall boldly answer the reaperís call,
for death speaks clearly to my forsaken heart.

You write with much passion and pain. I only wish Peace for you, My best hopes. That come one day, you will find the light that shines through your window of pain. To ease your suffering, and fill your heart with the love you truly deserve.

Chilling and so real, deeply disturbing. If we live very long Lori, we will all have been at this place, maybe more than once. It won't be this way forever if we hold on.

Do not knuckle under Lori. Braving it is the secret. See the number of people on your side. It should lift your heart and make you see reason. It is your feelings I am talking about. Your writting is wonderful.

May God bless you and give you the strength to face this world.

Great write.. penned only as one who has faced the reaper can pen. Hang in there hun. One day you will be free from these demons.

I've heard it said that the cure for Depression is to read the book of Philippians for a month. The Enemy comes to kill, steal & destroy. Don't let him win. I pray the Lord restores your joy. He gives beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. I take your words seriously, Lori. Death will cure nothing. It will lock you into your pain. Regret looks behind, Fear looks forward, Faith looks up. We love you. Don't give up. You're in my prayers. ~Connie

I feel for the place you are in, AND I'm with Sketchman. Hang in--no need to rush it.
Find other places where Love IS where you find it, like here. Hugs, Vicky.

I've learned to rise above the darkness, Lori. Yes, all these horrible things happen.
But there is also love and beauty. And I will always love you, Lori.
