Deathly Alive - Poem by Erin Massiello

Someone kill me
Put a bullet through my head
For I harbor no fear
Thrust a sword through my heart
It stopped beating long ago
Gag me with all your strength
I have already suffocated
Submerge my head under bitter water
For I dread no pain

Unhappiness is killing me
Sadness stole my heart
Depression assassinated my corpse
Sorrow embezzled my emotions
Despair slaughtered my mentality

I have putrid stories
I endured an awful hell
Praying to God to repair it all
Receiving not a single reply

I can show you horrific scars
Violence plastering my juvenile hands
Frenzy through my mature eyes
Cuts on my adolescent wrists
Abuse in my grown-up mind
Merely illustrating half the pain

I’ve struggled through existence
Torturing myself over and over
Pleading for a merciful death
Begging for a sudden fatality

I’ve searched for plenty of help
Simply receiving ridiculous medication
Exhausted of the outrageous drugs
Fatigued of the dreadful pain

Giving up is my alternative
I am prepared for death
Ready to depart this life
Death Is My Desire
My Tranquility
My Serenity

Please don’t ask questions
I’m drained of answering
I’ve shared everything
I’ve spilled my broken heart
I’ve shed my final tear
I’ve taken my last breath

Someone kill me
For I harbor no fear
For I dread no pain
