Sui Caedere (8 words in 8 lines collection)

As I awake, everyone in my family cries.

I see bloodstains on the floor. I ask,

“Mum and Dad, what is happening here? Please

Tell me so I know what to do.”

Neither one answers. And all I hear are

Painful agonising sobs of grief, pain, and sorrow.

Until I see a coffin, I slowly realise,

There lies my body from act of suicide.
