Happy birthday to me

I refuse your cake and candles
No more gifts or stabbing smiles
One more year I just cant handle
I don't want life, neither demise
No more diets or adventures
Neuroses gone and reappeared
Buy me a ticket to a black hole darling
I just want to disappear
I say NO to funeral
I decline your coffins
I refuse your treatments
I refuse your morphine
Don't bury me my sweet people
I beg do not put me in four walls
Do not burn me and scatter my ashes
I want to be gone, molecules and all
I refuse to put on makeup
To politely hide my insides
Filled with needles I imagine
That's where the restless pain resides
Happy birthday to you
Everyone starts singing
But dear William what if you're stuck
Between being and not being?
