308 (who?)
i was born with the
cord wrapped tight
around my neck; it
would seem fitting to
die the same way
getting more and more morbid by the day

Wow. . .wow.
Morbid, as you say, but speaks in leagues and bounds (especially for people with these tendencies or past).

Uh. . .yeah. No words, really.

keitone Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist is really sad.. he was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck... if the he was born just minutes earlier they may have been able to save him... 

This poem reminded me of Ernest Hemmingway's six word novel... with so few words you could both convey a really deep message that in itself tells a huge story.. 

Your poetry made me cry and laugh and I think its really really wonderful oaklungs! :')

My sister was born with hers wrapped around three times. :o I sure hope she won't die the same way though.

I'm not much of a dark person, but I quite liked this. Just try not to suffer too much, 'Kay?

I read somewhere that often best of arts are created through suffering. On one hand it is unfortunate that such depths must be dwelled in, but on the other hand, otherwise there would be a lot less good reading to relate to...
