blade in hand; knife in sight

waiting for the dark of night.

toes on edge, looking down;

the cars, six stories, the rest of town.

gun at my temple, heart in my chest;

yearning for eternal rest.

shut the door, break the key;

the last thing that i’ll ever see.

hands burned red, rope tied tight;

floating in immortal flight.

words are what have put me here,

against all things that i hold dear,

i’m not worth it, i remain tainted,

craving for the breathless, fainted;

rope, gun, building, knife;

whatever i need to take my life.
