The window is sealed 

 

The engine is running 

 

The pipe is nice and wide 

 

Let the fumes flow freely 

 

It gives me a reassuring pat on the back, telling me everything will be fine

 

I take deep and big breaths, filling my lungs with it

 

Just let me die, with no surprises 

 

I hear the door open, it's my mother

 

I was hiding in the garage

 

Playing hide and seek, just like I used to as a child

 

Only this time, she'll never find me

 

I hear her screaming as she discovers and unfolds my plot

 

She runs to the car and bashes on the window 

 

Her pleas are drowned out by my depression, as I don't care

 

I turn to her and smile, as the carbon monoxide cycles around my veins, killing me slowly

 

Cold and lifeless tears are streaming down cheeks, her face expresses desperation and sadness 

 

My head feels light, my oxygen is beginning to deplete

 

I stare into her eyes, as I take my finals breaths

 

And I say "Goodbye" to her, as I fade away into the fumes
