I sit and wonder how you fail,
How your goal falls low,
Why you still can move and breathe
When youíre your only foe.
Did your cries for help relieve?
Did your fake screams sound?
Did you hear the steel tide rise,
And no one care you drowned?
Your life-long vision is a farce,
That on you I depend,
Instead your waves of self pity,
Will dirty you, not cleanse.
But now youíre really gone away,
I know you canít return,
And those lost hours, sickly sweet,
Do slowly fade, not burn.
So lost inside the empty shape,
The one you left behind,
And all that I can find to fit
Are old thoughts in my mind.
Your selfishness has now shone through,
Your wolf-cry bubble pricked,
Iíll think of you this one last time,
Until the trigger goes: Click.

"Quite powerful...nicely written. Hope it isnt true." -- Michelle.
"Disturbing. It's a good piece, but leaves me feeling uneasy. Guess that's part of what makes it good though." -- Sylvia.
"Quite chilling though I'd subscribe more to the old adage, living well is the best revenge." -- Just A Guy.
"Very well written peice, i like it. shame ther is much about monkeys, but i think you have done your self proud with this!" -- Pingu, Plymouth, UK.
"Very powerful. i like it alot, the chill factor is what i like most about it, keep up the good work!" -- Mule.
"I'd have to say this is one of your best and that it has a real 'sense of finality'." -- Amy, Clevedon, North Somerset.
"i liked this one, it was very deep & got me thinking. it had a snese of beauty to it" -- nikki, bc, canada.
"When the trigger goes click, the coroners report will not read "attempted suicide". Well done!" -- Brian O Neil.
"Not all clicks end in death Brian. Many people who chicken out just before the click end up moving the gun enough to not kill themselves and they end up either a vegetable or just paralyzed. Either way, a burden on their loved ones. Suicide is a cowards way out. I like the piece, Rowan." -- R. Bennett Okerstrom.
