The Last Goodbye

I watch as my fresh blood drips from the razor, staining the carpet a dark red color. Tears fall after it, streaming down my face uncontrollably. I push my hair back behind my ears, and place the tip of the razor blade against my skin once more. I drag it down my forearm, leaving a trail of red liquid as I press the blade harder against my scarred arm. I flinch, but start to enjoy the pain. I know things will be better once I'm gone. Not just for me, but for my family. I've always been a burden. I wipe my tears, and carefully reach for a pen. I make my way over to the nightstand, and open my diary. I rip out a page and sit on my bed.

Dear Mom and Dad,

I know you're probably surprised at my death, but you shouldn't be. It's been this way for a long time now. I was just waiting for the right time to bring my life to an end, and I knew tonight was the night. Don't be upset, if you really cared, you would be happy for me. I'm in a better place now. I was never okay during my time alive. I just wanted to say goodbye, and that I love you guys. I truly do. You'll be better off without me, I promise. Don't cry over me, don't mourn my death. This is the right thing to do. It's time to end things, I was just another useless soul on Earth. I had no purpose. Thank you for loving me all this time, no matter how much of a pain I was. You stuck with me through everything, but this, this I have to do alone. I'll finally be able to spread my wings, and fly to where I need to be. Right now, I watch as the blood oozes from where the blade pierced my skin. The pain is crucial, but it makes me feel okay. And I know what I'm about to do will feel even better. I know this may be unforgivable, but please, do me one last favor, and be happy for me. I love you both so much.

The Last Goodbye,
Alyssa

I lay the letter carefully on my nightstand, and stand in front of the mirror. I swallow hard. I stand there for a moment, thinking of what I'm about to do. Once I go, there's no turning back. This is it, this is the end. I can finally stop the pain. Nobody who despises me will have to deal with my company any longer. I'll be free. I slowly raise the blade against my neck, my hands trembling. I look at myself one last time, and close my eyes. I smile faintly, and take a deep breath.

1, 2, 3.


A/N: Okay, so this one was kind of...sad, depressing. But that's just my mood right now. Sorry if it sucks. Please comment if you think I should write more One-Shots. :)
