Why I Killed Myself Today


Just a thought, and then I’m broken
Because of what I haven’t spoken
Words just dropp out of my head
And all my sense seems to have fled
When I end up in this situation
Even without any confrontation
And I can never say what I’m supposed to
All the things I said I’d do
Because I don’t want to be harmed
All of my world just gets alarmed
And sometimes I think I might die
And I think my body might comply
And throw me headfirst into the ocean
It’s not a totally farfetched notion
Because without you I’d be dead
But all the words just leave my head
And I can never think of what to say
That’s why I killed myself today
