Symbolic Suicide

I want to dive off the highest mountain,

to show you the depths of the pain you caused.


I want to shoot myself in the head,

to show you how much of my mind was occupied by the pain you caused.


I want to stab myself in the heart,

to show you how much pain is bleeding from me.


I want to cut off my arms,

to show you how your pain has shied me from opening them to others.


I want to cut off my legs,

to show you how you have hurt me so, that I donít know how to move on.


I want to find my soul,

because the pain you caused took it away.


I want to scoop out my eyes and give them to you,

so you can see the pain you caused me.


I hope your happy.
