It isn't how they say,
when you try IT.
Your face is cold and white,
your hands tremor slightly
and your stomach gurgles in
You wriggle up your toes,
and you bite your chapped, bloody lips.
You whisper to yourself
as you swallow pill after pill.
The capsules burst like grape seeds,
grape seeds full of acetaminophen,
and your eyes criss-cross jagged red lines.
You look at the clean, unwrinkled paper,
your suicide note.
What does yours say?
Mine says that I've been saved,
saved from death by death.
He hugged me to his bosom
and he made me okay again,
okay for the night
