It Was Art You See...

Rope.Wrist.Poison or Pills
So much to choose from but which one to go for
It was a hard decision
It really was
But I settled for wrist
Cos it seemed like fun

I sharpened my blade
Like an executioner at dawn
It kinda scared me
But it had to be done

The blade glided
Yet I felt no pain
The blood gushed forward like a fresh water spring
Sounds gross
I know it does
But to me it was art
The right way to go

It was time to go
My time to leave

Rope.Wrist.Poison or Pills
It was a hard decision
It really was
I chose wrist
It was art you see
