Hand me my red ink pen

And watch me go,

I'll show you my pain

That I never show,

Watch the way the tip sinks into my skin

As I pull it up my wrist,

Watch as my blood spills onto the cold stone floor,

And listen for the echo of my laughter.

Watch what you will see for the very last time,

Watch as I drop my red ink pen

Along with myself falling to the floor,

Watch as I slowly die,

Forever gone.
