Favorite Quote:
"Thou! thy truest type of grief is the gently falling leaf."
-Edgar Allan Poe

The air is thick
And heavy.
It reaches out with giant tendrils
Strangling life
Like a python
Strangles its prey.
It smothers us,
Kills us
Like a pillow
Pressed against our face.

But the funny thing is
We made the monster.
So ask yourself:
How is it that
Taking your own life
Is unjust yet
The mass suicide
Of an
Entire world
Is welcomed?
