im so tired
of being here
with all these tears,
filled with fears,
and no comfort
is drawing near.
someone kill me.

im tired of
trying hard,
and never really
getting far,
just a wanderer
in the dark.
someone kill me.

undo the contours
of my face
make a shape
no one can trace
the waste of space
in the human race.
someone kill me.

leave me in
a shallow hole,
i’ll stay awake
so cold alone,
in a state forever
honed in woe.
someone kill me.
