Poem too depressing?

Today I wrote this poem. After I finished I felt really bad. Do you guys think that its do depressing and dark? I usually don't write poems like this, but for some reason today I felt like writing something depressing. Tell me what you think. Here it is:

Babysitter

I hope mom regrets,
getting that sitter.
After all those threats,
he was a death transmitter.

It happened that night,
when mom left, he was nice.
But when it wasn't light,
he locked me up with the mice.

He yelled with a knife,
pushed me into the room.
Then he took my life,
and he sent me to my doom.

The house was quiet,
when mom got back home.
No sign of a riot,
no more did my killer roam.

She gasped when she saw-
my corpse, I was dead.
My neck was scraped raw,
and my own will she had read.

Tears formed in her eyes,
life wasn't worth living.
She said her goodbyes,
she was full of misgiving.

Then down she jumped,
to join me, her son.
Until ground, she bumped,
She knew her life would be done.

Now this you should know,
ex- dad was the one.
His hate would soon grow,
when divorced, he killed his son.

That was not what I expected lol
I like it. :) It's not too depressing at all, but it reads an awful lot morenlike a thriller than a tragedy. Very well done.

Very well written. I agree it's like a little poetic mini-novel.

Nice job.
