I wish for death...

I wish i couldn't open my eyes anymore,
To see this dire world come to life once more.
I wish i couldn't hear with my ears anymore,
to listen to mocking, cold laughter once more.
I wish i couldn't feel with my heart anymore,
to feel unfelt words of strangers anymore.
I wish i couldn't eat with my mouth anymore,
to eat rubbish scraps and putrid pastries once more.
I wish i couldn't live this so called life anymore,
to live in this crowded world alone.

I wish i could hug my dead mother once more,
for i don't want the embrace of life anymore.
I wish i could sleep in my mother's lap once more,
for i don't want to sleep on cold pavements anymore.
I wish i could kiss my dear mother once more,
for i don't want to be kissed by this biting wind anynore.
I wish i could listen to my mother's sweet voice once more,
for i don't want to listen to death's laughter anymore.
I wish i could live a life once more,
For i don't want to live this death anymore...
