Flirting With Suicide (Color It Red) - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

I lay in a coffin
Rest my eyes, as I close the lid
Now finally of
- This sorrow, I rid.

As my body grows limp
And, my breaths start to lessen
A gun slides in my mouth
As I pull the trigger of this Wesson

Spewing through the air;
Blood surely splatters
The sound is so raw-
It's mixed with organic matter

The brain flat-lines.
As does the heart
Farewell to the soul;
Was there even one from the start?

Peaceful and rested
Now I shall seem
Lost in death's trance
Tossed within the dream

Eyes now left nothing-
But, a blank, lifeless stare.
I'm donned in all black.
Peace now fills the air.

Waving goodbye
From a place deep within
No longer convinced
This suicide is a sin

Empty and dead
Yes, dead to the core.
I dreamed of this vision.
Yes, I dreamt it before

Now in my death
I find solace and peace
I find my soul at ease
As I now lay deceased.
