Disclaimer: Well, I'm still here, aren't I??? haha

Poof! Gone.

In my darkest hours I
Dream of ways to die
Without the messy trappings
Of heart-wrenching goodbyes
To disappear like magic
With a blink of my eye.

Interesting. One step to freedom? Or, they just unilaterally severed all their relationships?

Just trying to juggle the pros and cons.

Sometimes the only con is the pain one would leave behind. Pretty big con for people with good families. Thanks for commenting, Adam.

I'd change dreams, Bobi--but excellent none-the-less!

The dream is not as grim as you think... Thanks, Mike.

Honestly, the goodbyes are the reason I never followed through with any of my plans; I'd want to leave letters behind for those closest to me to let them know it wasn't their fault, and for them to keep living their life as best they can. That always stopped me from giving in. Goodbyes can be so difficult and sometimes that's a good thing.
So much said in a few lines. Well written!

Good to see you're in a happy mood Bobi, I have this fear that if I knock myself off I'll just come back!
