Little Suicides

by Dnaleristap

Little Suicides

Another gulp, another toke

Another hateful racist joke.

Pedal to the metal for a lark

Headlights off after dark.

Angry words to start a fight

In jail again one more night.

Draw a knife across my skin

to bleed away my cardinal sin

Belittle the faithful without repentence.

I cringe, awaiting another life sentence

Careless sex with those I hate

Nasty little virus will seal my fate.

Guilt and shame for what I've done

Without the nerve to pick up a gun.

Don't have a pistol to my head

Doesn't mean I don't want to be dead.

Hate them all, that's for sure

My hate for me knows no cure.

Ain't got the balls to get it done

So I abuse myself one on one.

Punish myself a little at a time

Wasting life ought to be a crime.

But no one here sobs and cries

As I commit these little suicides

A powerful write - its strength comes from its evident sincerity.
