Watch Me Die - Poem by Roberta James Mitchell

lit a cigarette and watch me die;
as you always sit in front of the tv,
now sit in front of me.

as it you weren´t my friend,
watch me cry once again,
not eve knowing what to say.

eat some popcorn and prepare,
it´ll be the greatest show,
my last performance.

it won´t be long ´til i´m death,
be on time, it starts at ten.

call my mom and tell her
i won´t make it for dinner tonight,
tell my sister i won´t miss her,
since all we did was fight.

i´m better off like this,
it´s better for all of us,
don´t pretend to stop me.

now, be happy, i´ll be gone,
isn´t it what you wanted?
prepare for my last show.

it´ll get better once i´m death,
this is how i clean my mess.
watch me while i kill myself,
watch me while i cut my head.

sit in front of me,
as you do with the tv,
eat some popcorn and prepare,
watch me take my life to an end.
