End of a Lifetime

April 20, 2021
By Anonymous

A single "Bang!"

A fall.

A thud.

Blood spatter upon the wall and,

by his side,

an empty gun.

A single bullet

ripped through his skull.

His eyes glazed over,

their sparkle dulled.

Of being depressed,

he'd given no sign.

He'd always acted like

he was just fine, but

life was unkind and

his loved ones were blind

to the pain he kept hidden

deep down inside.

It was a grisly end nobody thought he'd have

because nobody suspected his lifetime

would end with suicide.
