Successful Suicide
Author: The Lost Girl


I heard the screaming and I walked to the door,
I opened it up and there she was on the floor,
Blood was pouring from her open wounds,
she said that she knew her life would be gone soon.
I asked her why as I knelt by her crying,
she gave me a smile that said she's happy dying,
She replied with the most serene voice ever,
saying that life was too much to weather,
It was too fast, too demanding, too hard,
and death was something that was never too far,
she said that if she stayed here things would be the same,
so leaving this earth was the name of her game,
I held her hand as she droped the stained knife,
and told her that she was lying, she really wanted life,
She closed her eyes and her head she shook,
I knew she was honost, I read her like a book,
She took a deep breath and nothing else was said,
and her pleasent smile remained as she laid the dead.
Not soon after I noticed something about the girl-
she was me- when I gave my successful suicide a whirl.
