Write Me Off

Disregard my drowning tears

And failed attempts of happiness

With a wave of your manicured hand.

Dismiss my murmurings of despair

As mere imaginings of a broken soul;

and lie to me.

Tell me that things will get better,

That one day, I won't want to die.

Lie to me.

Confirm your inability

To cure my soul of the unknown.

Prescribe ailments that yeild no effect

On me,

On my shattered world.

Suffocate my fears with words of deceit,

And cease my panic and terror

With a glare of bewilderment and horror.

Horror of the unknown.

Write off my life

With a misunderstand nod

Of your intelligent head.

Lie to me

And tell me I'm fine.
