Until I Am No Longer
It’s not what you want to hear,
So I won’t tell you now,
But someday maybe you’ll see
We're both better off without me.
It’ll be hard as Hell at first--
At least that’s what it would be like
If I lost you.
But life is already like Hell for me,
And I think you’d be fine eventually.
I think I’d be better off away from here,
Not having to gasp for air.
And I think you’d be okay,
And I think I might finally be happy
All by myself,
Far from this claustrophobic island,
full of people
and yet so empty.
So I'll go all alone
No more pain
No more stress
No more exhaustion
No more memories
Of your depression,
And no longer thinking--
until I am no longer.
