A Beautiful Way to Die

Why can’t I leave you behind like all the rest?

Who are we?

You’re not who you were,

And I’ve never known who I am.

True love or obsession.

A hand full of pills or depression.

Strangers arms around me are warm,

But they’re not yours.

Why do I long for those arms for comfort?

The same ones that put the knife in my back.

The same ones that tie this noose around my neck.

The same ones I wish would save me now.

Come rushing in, tears in your eyes,

Just to kick the stool beneath me.

Looking into your eyes as I suffocate from my own devotion.

A beautiful way to die.

    Potassium cyanide is even easier!
    Hope not. Life is meant to live.
