People

People lie, people cheat, people steal. People pretend to be something that they are not. Why? To protect themselves. They hide themselves from the outside world, scared of what they’ll think of them, scared of being judged. Scared that people will not accept them for who they are. They walk around by themselves, they sit alone, out of choice. You approach them, trying to be nice, trying to be a good person. They accept your friendship, they take your hand, with a grin on their face and a look in their eyes that could not be deciphered, of course it couldn’t be, you didn’t suspect anything.

People change. People promise you countless things. They promised that one day we will be free and away from reality. They said that we will be together forever, I promise. They said that one day when the world is finally on our side, me and you, we will own this town. We will show the world how to rule and we will leave everything, absolutely everything behind. They got so carried away, there’s no surprise you believed them.

People break your trust. They promised to never forget you and be friends, friends until the end, but where are they now? Why haven’t they spoke to you in a week, now two weeks and oh, a month. They stopped talking completely, they punish you in so many ways, why? Because you deserve it. Because the person you put all of your trust in was not the right person. But now, look where we are, oh that’s right, here we are in the future, trying to warn our past self. Trying to uncover the truth to them, trying to save them. But there’s no use, they can’t hear. They are too deaf to hear us over the sound of their trust. False hopes have been planted, and the seeds of deceit have been drawn. All there’s left now is to wait, wait for the bullet to hit.

People crush you. But no ordinary tools are used for that, oh no, they use you to crush yourself. You become angry with yourself, blaming everything on you. When in the corner, laughing at how much it is affecting you, is them. The cruel monster that they are, are sniggering in the corner, finding joy in your unhappiness. They brought you to the top, just so that when the time is right, you will trip over your own two feet.

People leave you. They leave you in the dark, the taunting, haunting dark. The dark that scares even your nightmares. They don’t care about the one, two, three slits on your wrists, I mean who would? They don’t care about the four, five, six tears that fall down your face, they never did. Where are they now? You don’t see them, but I do. I see them very clearly, at your side, but not your right side, I see them at your devil’s side.

People forget. People forget that you were ever on this lonely earth. They forget that at one point you were so close, closer than a mother is to her child. They forget that they left you in an alley, with no help, no friendship, no light to guide you. They forget when they saw the scars on your wrists and the tear stains down your cheek. They forget when they turned and walked the other way, turning a blind eye to what they had just witnessed. They forget when they heard your screams from round the corner, and looked to see you lying cold, dead, breathless on the floor. They forget when they saw the sirens from afar to take you away, and they fled, they ran to the end of the earth, trying to get the picture out of their head.

People escape. People walk away from you resting on the ground. They think that their lies and scams had finally pulled off. But what they don’t know, what they don’t see is that you are now at peace. You are away from the place that gave you nothing but sadness and tears. You are away from the people who gave you false hopes, false dreams, and false guidance. You are happy, above them all, watching over the people who destroyed the mortal you with lies, tricks and betrayal. You are content, watching them run away, fleeing from the people who wish to disclose them. They are tired, afraid, hopeless, just like you were.

    I’m confused by the comments. Others found it optimistic. I’m reading it as if the person is at peace because they killed themselves. I hope I’m wrong.

    Yes, people hurt each other, none are perfect. People come and go, change is a given.

    I hope this powerful writing is just a story, or a vent, and not your personal stand. There is definitely pain involved in human relationships but in time we can work through the pains and traumas and live a productive and happy life.

    I will look through more of your blog!

      Okay so I purposely made it quite general so that people can obviously apply it to their own lives and they can interpret it in their own ways.
      The person at the end is at peace because they killed themselves, but the other one who took advantage of them is now feeling the guilt. It kind of teaches us how we treat other people and it also shines a light into some of the (maybe) positives of suicide. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, but I’m saying that it isn’t entirely an evil thing either.
      This was a story based on experience but I’m still sat here writing so I wanted to see what would happen if they did kill themselves, and so I explored that through my writing. Thank you for reading my blog I really appreciate it and I hope you enjoy reading 🙂

    I think this is something everything can relate to. I like how it ends up at an optimistic note. It’s easy to bear grudges and dwell on people who are not worth it. The worst is when that person is still in your life. I have my fair share of grudges. The most damaging are those who make you think you’re crazy when they’re mistreating you. But you’ve covered all your bases with destructive people. I enjoyed this piece with the anger and optimism.

      Thank you and it is exactly how you say the most damaging are the ones you make you think you are crazy and they make you blame yourself.
      I’m really glad that you enjoyed my post and I will definitely look at your blog too 🙂

    This is so beautiful. and so accurate, in the end all that matters is that you came out strong and knew they weren’t the people you needed in your life.
