They Say This Should Feel Something Like Fire.

Have you ever wondered,
What it feels like, to die?
To breathe a final breath, and just slip away?
I know.

I know what it feels like to die,
Because, I'm already dead.

First, you make that first cut,
Sharp, the pain is dull.
Then, you make more cuts,
And the fire is growing.

The fire, it spreads fast,
Swallowing your soul,
The blood, your blood,
It begins to seep out.

The fire rages on, up to your heart,
It begins to slowly devour it, claiming it,
The fire, it's a monstrosity,
That, that you had created.

Too late to back out now,
It's too late to stop,
You stumble back,
You fall.

You die.

So, do you know what it feels like?
To completely shut off, the entire world?
Do you know what it feels like,
To sink so low, you end it?
You end the pain, and you end the suffering,
All it took was one cut, to make it all go away.

I know, I know how it feels.
How did you think, I got where I am now?



Woah. Angsty, much? Who wants an angsty person in their life, I'll be good to you.
See? This is what happens when I have little interaction.
