Id be lying if I said ive never thought about it
We all would be
The thrill of the final seconds
The rush of adrenaline that pulses thru your body
Like the moment before boarding a roller coaster
Your hearts in your throat
Your stomach drops

There are many ways,
Some more harsh than others
Some better for different people
some leave with a bang
showing everyone how they really felt
others simply slip thru
in their own little world,
the only place they think they belong

for the lucky ones
it only takes one time to finish it all
to shut down all the pain and misery
the unlucky have to try and try again
feeling worse each time they wake up from the attempt
think of better ways, maybe get new ideas from those like them

something about living and dying just doesnt make sense
how the people living the best lives,
who would never thinks of hurting themselves
get killed by reckless drivers or some freak accident
but then how the miserable ones,
who think of death everyday
cant seem to find a break in this harsh and unforgiving world

I was inspired by one of my favorite books, Crash Into Me.
