Sadness overwhelming

Posted to Poetry

Before the poem, I would just like to ask someone to comment on my, "I am the figurehead of this ship," poem. I feel like it has been lost in time.

Is when
You place a gun to your temple
And hope you can shoot yourself

Sadder still
You place a gun in your mouth
And no you can’t shoot yourself

You realize
“I do not contemplate suicide
"Only ponder the lackluster life I lead"
