Longing Poem by Jesse Bauer

Longing



In this moment, my utmost terror.
Arms are heavy, held to ground
Step by step, weighted down.
Getting closer, soul grows bearer.

To leap from here is death for sure
Looking over, hell of a fall.
If I slip, I’d lose it all.
Being pulled by lustful lure.

(chorus) Can’t resist, can’t pretend.
I’m longing for my painful end.
Can’t hide it, cannot lie.
It’s only that I want to die.
Hate me then, hate me now.
Death seems the only way out.
Can’t resist, can’t pretend.
I’m longing for my painful end.

Cock it back, now ready to fire.
help me now and take my life.
Much less simple than a sharpened knife.
Sanity held by a threadbare wire.

Barrel shaking between my teeth.
Bullet lusting for my blood.
Pull the trigger and it will flood.
Lead rising from my chin beneath.

(chorus)

Clenching my fist on my poison death.
Just 2 tablets? I think not.
Being sure to die, it takes a lot.
Break the seal and take a breath.

Taking in my sweet desire.
I lock my door and seal my room.
Choking down my sinful doom.
Convulsing hard, my body on fire.

(chorus)

Can’t hide it, cannot lie.
It’s only that I want to die.
Hate me then, hate me now.
Death seems the only way out.
Can’t resist, can’t pretend.
I’m longing for my painful end.
