“The dreams in which I’m dying, are the best I’ve ever had”…

He can’t halt the voices within his head…
Always filling him with fear, hate and dread…
They make him wish he was simply dead…
How did it come to this…

They come and attack at any time…
Sometimes in the day when he’s feeling fine…
At night they haunt, remind him of his crimes…
He looks for an escape…

He’s stood on the edge and looking down…
Gazing upon this bustling town…
His pale and hollow face carries such a frown…
So scared of his next move…

If he takes one step then it’s all over…
He’d forget his problems and dream of clover…
Free his spirit like an Irish rover…
Yet fear freezes up his soul…

His hidden memories come flooding back…
His whole existence is under attack…
His sanity is about to crack…
He needs to end this pain…

He closes his eyes and takes a breath…
The only way to relieve this stress…
His lungs are filled with the scent of death…
His body begins to fall…

His brain is struggling to comprehend…
Thinking of all his so called friends…
But blacking out as he descends…
Too late to stop this now…

The are no angels stood around waiting…
Just a blackness that’s forever extending…
And a sadness that will be never ending…
His pain is still so raw…

Trapped in Hell, his soul’s sentence begins…
Only his cruel and bitter conscience wins…
This suicide did not erase his sins…
A lesson too late to learn…

He couldn’t halt the voices within his head…
Down this path, he was cruelly lead…
He should have listened to his heart instead…
But this world was driving him mad…
