Tuesday 8/24/10 - "GOING OUT" - A Magpie Tale




(Magpie Tales are hosted by Willow. Click to read more.)



"GOING OUT"



She would go out in luxury. One last exquisite soak.

The pills and wine were close at hand.


She would turn the water on again and then her toe would make its home in the spigot.


(She whispered, "God, please help me stop." )

What happened to love of self here?
But, having said that, a gentle way to go. But not for you my friend.

...and we know so many on the verge. We see them, hear them, everywhere.

Is this your first Mag? It is not a happy one...so sad. And HOPE is there/here for the asking.

Wow, powerful.

Syd said...

I hope that she doesn't die. Too many senseless suicides.

willow said...

No, don't do it! Not even in a Marilyn-Monroe-toe-stuck-in-the-spigot kind of way!

Brian Miller said...

a desperate moment there...

Everyday Goddess said...

it does seem like an easy way to go. I hear the Romans slit their wrists first.
very intense Magpie.

Wanda's Wings said...

I have been there before and God did help me stop. If it were not for His love I would not be alive today.

Linda said...

Gee, so sad and desperate. Thankfully, I cannot imagine such feelings that would make one want to end it all. I do hope He intervened in time.
