One Way Train

Tossing, turning,
and ever so consuming.
Nothing can stop what I have done.
I am ready for whatever comes.
For I am on a one way train
that only stops when they reach my brain.
Wash them down with a glass of wine.
No human body can decline
this lethal dose of sertraline.

This poem is about someone who has made some poor decisions. They decide that overdosing on antidepressants (sertraline) is the best option.
