I have been sitting here wracking my brain on what I could write about for my second post. I try to at least put up two post. As I am going through my reader commenting on the writings I’ve come to like I came across this post by Slade Wilson |Dear Alex and it got me thinking of a plethora of things.
First I am scared to say that I felt the letter was beautiful and heartfelt. The words all fit together in a painful sorrow. And because I am reading it, my perception did double takes, I began filling in blanks on why a letter like this could be wrote. I ultimately thought it a suicide note. My imagination gets the best of me somtime but this overwhelming feeling of some soul pouring out because the journey is getting tough for whatever reason had me think.
Of all the suicide notes out there, is this a writer trying to shed insight of feelings and why these acts of taking our own lives are carried out? It got me thinking is this a true letter that was posted on wordpress in search of some type of response. Will my comment save a life, after feeling this type of feeling could I go on and ignore to comment. I noted that no responses were given yet, and maybe people haven’t had the chance to look it over yet, but if by some small saving grace we are able to help rescue, confide or deter a human from such an act would a comment be too much to do or ask of a person. Could this comment change the course of an action. I couldn’t walk away I had to pour my soul out in a comment and ultimately a post.
I never witnessed personally a suicide note, but in my imagination this is what one would look like- minus my beautiful take on a tragic event that could possibly happen in moments. While I don’t know if this letter is a result of a personal truth or feeling I felt a duty to let the writer, the person, the human know that someone is always there to help out, its a matter of noticing the que’s and that sounds all wrong to me, but how do you notice an act like this before it happens. Especially from some one your just getting to know through writing.
Any who check out the post, let me know your take on it, how did it make you feel. I am just one person and this is how I received the write, It will be interesting to see if I was right in an assessment or if my imagination has taken me all the way to the left again as it usually does.
I want to say I hope you enjoy it, but in a deeper sense I really hope that you don’t. A suicide note may be a very good written expression of emotions that one may be going through but the torment of dealing with it will last a life time. Definitely would not be perceived as beautiful if the latter was true.
