(TRIGGER WARNING–Reference to suicide)
I sigh with relief as it closes in,
That light I’ve long yearned for within.
I stretch my arm and extend my hand,
I close in on the conclusion of my plan.
It all ends here tonight.
I smile with sheer delight.
The end glows as it approaches,
It’s enriching and warm as it encroaches.
What’s this? No! It cannot be!
An unseen force is denying me.
The light dims, the warmth grows cold,
“Hang in there,” from a distance I’m told.
I fight to return to the heavenly glow,
But it’s gone now, that I surely know.
The person looking at me seems relieved,
My empty life they’ve just retrieved.
This would’ve been much simpler with a gun,
It would seem my plan has been undone.
